RECIPE BY MOSES LABOY

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz. Van Gogh Cool Peach
  • 1 oz. Rhubarb Syrup (Home/Bar Made)
  • 3/4 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 dash Angostura Bitters
  • Pink Peppercorn & Salt

PREPARATION

Add all ingredients in shaking tin (except pink peppercorn & salt) shake vigorously and double strain into a half pink peppercorn & salt rimmed glass over a 2″ ice cube.

*Rhubarb Syrup:
Make a 50/50 simple syrup using only the skins of fresh rhubarb stalks to add the rhubarb flavor.

*Pink Peppercorn/Salt Rim:
Grind one cup of pink peppercorns and one cub of kosher salt in a spice grinder and use to rim the glass. I like to only rim half the glass as to not overwhelm the guest or cocktail. It also becomes a two in one libation.

INSPIRATION

I love creating seasonally appropriate cocktails and rhubarb is at its prime right now. So I decided to create something very tasty with a nice balance of sweetness, citrus and spicy earthiness. Hence I’ve created the Square Root for the enjoyment of all.

Cheers!
