Rhubarb Martinis

In the spring/summer when rhubarb is in season, these are one of my favorite cocktails. They are delicious and easy to make.

For the rhubarb syrup:

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-2 cups rhubarb roughly chopped

For the martinis:

  • 3 oz vodka
  • 2 oz rhubarb simple syrup
  • 1/2 oz fresh lime juice


To make the rhubarb syrup:

  • In a saucepan combine chopped rhubarb, sugar and water, bring to a boil and simmer over low heat for 7-10 minutes until rhubarb is very tender and falling apart. Cool.
  • Put the rhubarb syrup though a fine sieve and store in a clean, mason jar in a refrigerator for up to a month.

To make the martinis:

  • Put all the ingredients together into a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. 
  • Pour the Rhubarb Martini through a cocktail strainer into the glasses. Always taste before pouring and add more syrup if too sour or more lime juice if too sweet.
