Witch’s Brew: Summer Solstice Sunset
Prep time
Total time
This cocktail featuring St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Barr Hill Gin and homemade Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup creates a beautiful and seasonal drink the color of a deep summer sunset.
  • 3 cups fresh rhubarb, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup fresh strawberries, coarsely chopped
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 oz. Gin (Barr Hill Gin is my favorite)
  • 2 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 2 oz. strawberry rhubarb syrup
  • ice
  1. To Make Strawberry-Rhubarb Syrup
  2. Place rhubarb, strawberries and honey in a saucepan over medium heat with a lid on. Cook down until you have a nice fruit sauce where all the pulp is broken down. Strain fruit sauce and keep the liquid, the liquid is the syrup, keep the pulp for other uses, like smoothies, muffins, or to eat stirred into yogurt (which I did this morning and it was fantastic!).
  3. To Make the Cocktail
  4. Place all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. Then strain into glasses. Garnish with a spear of rhubarb poking through the center of a slice of strawberry. Serves 2
