Rhubarb, Fennel & Vermouth Cocktail

Our wedding season is in full swing and we have the perfect cocktail to help your wedding party cool down whilst celebrating! The Rhubard, Fennel and Gin cocktail features contrasting flavours to tantalise guests palates whilst providing  insta-worthy snaps!


For the cocktail
1 1/2 oz dry vermouth
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz rhubarb fennel syrup
1/2 oz gin
pinch salt
rhubarb ribbon and fennel frond (for garnish)

For the rhubarb fennel syrup
3/4 cup thinly chopped rhubarb
3/4 cup chopped fennel bulb
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon pinch of orange zest


For the rhubarb fennel syrup
Add the sugar, water, rhubarb, fennel and orange zest to a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, occasionally stirring, until syrup thickens slightly and rhubarb starts to soften and break down (~15 minutes).
Strain through a fine mesh strainer. Use the back of a spoon to push on the rhubarb and fennel to extract any remaining liquid from the pulp. Leave to cool and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

For the cocktail
Add the lemon juice, rhubarb fennel syrup, gin, salt, and vermouth to a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain over new ice into an old fashioned glass. Garnish with a fennel frond and a rhubarb ribbon. (note: a vegetable peeler works well for making lovely long rhubarb ribbons).
