It’s no secret, I’m into rhubarb. This week I thought, why not use it in a cocktail. The result? Delicious!
I also have to mention that there’s been extra happiness this week as my best friend since 7th grade (hi amy!) gave birth to the cutest baby boy. I am so proud of her and happy to welcome the handsome mr. cameron into this world.
I’m looking forward to checking off a another item on my 30/30 list this weekend. A little hint, it’s a long weekend, which always means a good time. So cheers to amy and all of you!

2 oz bourbon
1 oz rhubarb simple syrup*

*to make rhubarb simple syrup:
combine 1 cup rhubarb cut into 1-inch pieces, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water. Simmer on the stove top until rhubarb has broken down and become mushy, 20-30 minutes. strain out the liquid and discard the rhubarb. tada! you’ve got rhubarb simple syrup.
