This is the drink of the summer - sweet and tart rhubarb syrup, gin, and apple, topped up with inch's Apple Cider for this beautiful peach colour.

Done in 1 hour

Serves 6




1kgforced rhubarb, diced

1cooking apple, diced


400ggranulated sugar

2sprigs fresh rosemary





Apple slices and rosemary, to garnish


Candied rhubarb garnish:



2 stalksrhubarb, peeled

The garnish is what makes this extra special - rhubarb strips are candied and wrapped around a spoon to make these fun rhubarb twirls!


For the syrup, add everything to a large pot. 

Cook it for 15 minutes over medium heat until the rhubarb has broken down. Let it cool for 10 minutes, then strain over cheesecloth. Let cool for a further 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, start on the garnish. Dissolve the sugar in the water over medium heat. Remove from the heat and let cool until you can touch it.

Preheat the oven to 100 C. Dunk the rhubarb peel in the sugar water mixture.

Arrange on a baking tray with greaseproof paper, then pop into oven until fairly dry (check on it every 15 minutes)

Curl the strips around a wooden spoon, leave it for 10 minutes to set then slide off the spoon, and there's your garnish!

In a pitcher, combine the syrup and gin with ice. Mix with a long cocktail spoon, then top up with Inch’s cider

For the individual pour, garnish with the candied rhubarb twirl and a sprig of rosemary.
