Spring in a cup – How to make Two Delicious Rhubarb Cocktails

Story & Recipes: JOY FLANAGAN

Rhubarb art by AMBER LOCKE

When it’s winter in New England, I love the excuse snow gives me to stay in and read, watch movies, or try out a new recipe.

After a few months of brisk cold though, anyone would celebrate the first signs of spring, and hearty stalks of rhubarb are certainly one of those signifiers. The tang of their stalks is no stranger to cocktails, as it has been a key ingredient in bitter aperitif liqueurs such as Aperol and Zucca for many years.

I like to showcase the beautiful tartness in refreshing highballs that prove a great way to toast to the changing seasons.
