There are so many new gins on the market these days. It’s hard to keep up with all the variations. But there is one that I’ve noticed gaining popularity around the world, and that’s Rhubarb & Ginger gin.

There’s something incredibly appealing about this gin. It’s very light – not a strong rhubarb flavor, and not a strong kick of ginger. When made well, it’s really good. I particularly like the one made by Edinburgh Gin Distillery in Scotland. You can get this gin in the United States and other locations as well. It’s grown incredibly popular.

But there are many others on the market now too, like the one by Whitley Neill and Jawbox.  The best way to drink this gin is either on the rocks, if you like it straight, or with ginger ale, as we’ve done with this recipe. It’s also pretty good with tonic water or lemonade.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur – It’s very light – not a strong rhubarb flavor, and not a strong kick of ginger.
  • Ginger ale – Use your favorite ginger ale or ginger beer.
  • Garnish – Lime and fresh ginger

Helpful Tips

  • I often substitute the ginger ale for ginger beer. Give it a try both ways and see how you like it best.
  • You can use ginger, lime, or rhubarb for a garnish.
  • I like to make a twist of ginger using a kitchen spiralizer.

How to Make a Rhubarb Cocktail

For this cocktail, you’ll need 2 oz of Rhubarb Ginger gin, and a good ginger ale. Make sure you taste the ginger ale before putting it into the cocktail. I find that ginger ale varies so much, and if it’s too cloudy or overpowering a flavor, you won’t be able to taste the rhurbarb.

This recipe is so easy to remember, and even easier to put together. Just grab a highball glass or large-bowl wine glass, like the one we’ve used, plus a cocktail jigger to measure out the parts.

You can see, I’ve added a fresh lime wheel and a spiral of fresh ginger as garnish. You could add a twist of fresh rhubarb as well, if you have it. I like to use a potato peeler to shave off a strip of rhubarb. It’s so beautiful as garnish.

Ginger Ale vs Ginger Beer

While Ginger Ale and Ginger Beer are not the same thing, you can use either in this cocktail recipe. It’s the mixer for the Rhubarb Gin and either will give you that nice ginger kick. Ginger ale is lighter, while ginger beer has a stronger taste. Some ginger beers also have an alcohol content, anywhere from 0.5% to 5 or 6%.
