Did you know October is national Rhubarb month?
In light of this Jawbox very kindly sent me their incredible PINK (for those of you who know me you will know this is a massive bonus for me) Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur to test and review for Luxuria Lifestyle.
I’ve only recently started drinking gin so by no means would I call myself a connoisseur in any way shape or form but I can tell what tastes good and this definitely does!
I mixed it with lime tonic, ice and garnished with mint, raspberries and blueberries. It was sweet and refreshing, the taste of the Rhubarb brought a tart flavour to the drink which meant it wasn’t too sweet and the hint of ginger was lovely and refreshing.
My Family and I enjoyed the cocktails to celebrate the birth of my niece (Amelie Jessica Olivia) last week so was fitting that it was pink! They all thoroughly enjoyed it, I could tell because it went down very quickly!!
There are various different ways the Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur can be enjoyed including: (click the links for full recipes)
