To make rhubarb syrup bring 1/2 cup water, 2 chopped stalks of rhubarb and a dollop of honey to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until rhubarb softens and releases juices. Pour into a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside in a bowl to cool. Note, this is not really a syrup but more like a mousse consistency.
Dip glasses in lime juice and salt. Set aside.
Combine all ingredients into a blender and blast on high until smooth.
Pour into prepared glasses and garnish with a rhubarb stalk or rosemary sprig (or both!)
If you love a Bloody Mary but don’t have the patience for 10+ ingredients…
2 oz Vodka (or Gin if you prefer)
1 oz Tomato juice*
1/2 oz olive brine
3 drops Tabasco
Black pepper rim (optional)
Dip a side of the martini glass in lemon and black pepper. Mix all of the ingredients and let stand on ice for 30 seconds. Shake well and strain into the prepared glass. Adjust spiciness with extra Tabasco.
*We prefer using V8 juice which mixes tomato with a bunch of other veggies for a more robust flavor profile.
