Purity of the Turf

Friday, September 18, 2015

Big Ten football may not be terribly popular amongst doctoral musicology students (with one notable exception in our program, at least), but hardly anyone is anti-gin. Here's hoping this zippy cocktail will help earn us some new friends in Michigan!

Purity of the Turf

1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz Dolin dry vermouth
1/2 oz rhubarb syrup
2 dashes orange bitters

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice; stir until chilled. Strain over ice into an old-fashioned glass; garnish with an orange peel.

Notes: This cocktail is a rhubard-infused take on a classic Martinez (which I especially like with tequila) is fresh and spirited. To make rhubard syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan with 4 parts chopped rhubarb. Simmer until deep pink, then let cool and strain.
