This is my new go-to hot weather refresher. It can be hard to get rhubarb flavor into cocktails, but I have a secret weapon: Liber and Co's awesome Rhubarb and Ginger Shrub. A tart and citrusy combination of this shrub plus lemon juice bring out the agave flavors of blanco tequila, while a touch of St. Germain sweetens things up and adds a floral accent.

  • Yield:Makes 1 cocktail
  • Active time: 2 minutes
  • Total time:2 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces blanco tequila
  • 3/4 ounce Liber and Co Rhubarb and Ginger Shrub

  • 1/2 ounce St. Germain
  • 1 ounce club soda
  • Garnish: lemon wheel
