rhubarb gin & tonic

I know its two drinks in a row but it is the weekend and, having just spent a week in California (in San Francisco and then driving down highway 1 to Los Angeles), i’m struggling to get back into the flow of things.

I started this rhubarb gin off several months ago, adapting the Nigella rhubarb schnapps recipe that I made a couple of years ago (just swapping the vodka for gin ) and, when we got back I removed the rhubarb and gave it a try.

It’s wonderful. I expect we’ll try it in various other cocktail recipes but keeping it simple, with some ice and tonic is just what I need as I settle back into London life. I can’t decide if a slice of orange would be a good addition or not – any thoughts?
