rhubarb & ginger martini

a mid-week cocktail for you, made using my homemade rhubarb gin. this is wonderful - a hint of ginger, enough rhubarb and plenty of gin to provide a kick - and a perfect way to kick off a sunny (or not so sunny) evening.

roughly slice a half-thumb of ginger and bash it about a bit in the bottom of your cocktail shaker, to release a bit of flavour. add 2 shots gin, 1 shot rhubarb gin, 1/4 shot of dry vermouth and a few drops of orange bitters. stir with ice, strain and serve in a martini glass, garnished with a twist of orange zest.
