Rhubarb Gin Fizz

When’s the last time you had a “me day”?

On Sunday I did nearly no work, I put on a mask, which smelled sort of disgusting by the way, binge-watched Empire (just a lil’ obsessed!)…and then I ate nachos all by myself. It most likely was a sad sight but believe me when I say it was puuuuuure bliss.

This rhubarb egg white fizz fit into the equation later on, when it was nighttime and candles were lit. I had some almost-on-the-way out rhubarb in the fridge and I wanted to make myself a cocktail that was sort of girly and tasted delicious. Dis was it.

It’s spring, in case you didn’t know, which means I’ll be abusing produce like rhubarb, strawberries and English peas. Just you wait, by summer you’re gonna be begging for peach recipes.

If you’ve never had a fizz cocktail, with egg whites, you’re in for a treat. I have always sort of shied away from ordering fizz cocktails at bars, mainly because raw egg white is so of icky. I mean, I hate when my fried eggs aren’t thoroughly cooked but the good news is that you can’t taste it/see it. It’s just nice and frothy and cold and sweet and tart.

Perfect for spring days. Perfect for when you have a bunch of fresh eggs that have no plans. And perfect for “me” days that are all about lazing around and doing absolutely nothing…except drinking of course.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Serving Size: 2 cocktails

Ingredients

Rhubarb Syrup:

  • 3 stalks rhubarb, trimmed and cut into 1/4 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Pinch of salt

Cocktails:

  • 3 ounces gin
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup rhubarb syrup
  • Ice
  • Soda water

Directions

  • In a medium saucepan, set over medium heat, add the chopped rhubarb, water, sugar, lime juice and pinch of salt. Cover the pan and cook until the rhubarb softens and becomes all juicy and stuff, about 5 to 7 minutes. Run the syrup through a strainer, discarding any rhubarb bits, and allow to cool completely.
  • To a cocktail shaker, pour in the gin, egg whites, heavy cream, lime juice, rhubarb syrup and generous handful of ice. Give it a shake, for about a minute, I’m talking REALLY shake it—it should be frothy and cold. Divide the egg white fizz between the two glasses. Top with a slash of soda water.

    I’m a sucker for anything with Gin and rhubarb is such a big thing in the UK every summer, that I just must try making this. I know egg whites have made a comeback in cocktails…haven’t tried that at home yet…will do though! 😉

    Oh man – I’m obsessed with Empire too! So so so good! I’ve been taking these rainy spring days as opportunities to enjoy myself with sitcoms, homemade cookies, and loungin’!

    Ugghh I’m desperately in need of a “me day” like that. Yours totally sounds like pure bliss.

    Finding time for yourself is a really great habit. Adding a cocktail (or two or three) is like the icing on the cake. My favorite cocktails are all gin based. I can’t wait to try this recipe. Recommendation for the brand of gin?

      Oh yes! I use St. George’s Gin but Hendrick’s is pretty delicious too.

    This is so dang pretty! I love that barely pink, creamy, frothy color happening. IEven though it’s weird, im into egg whites in cocktails.

    Girl, your egg white foam game is strong. I mean, it’s perfect. I can’t resist a cocktail with egg white!

    Also, totes unrelated but I am super jealous of your ceramics collection.

    I haven’t tried a gin fizz before, but this drink is calling my name!

    This is not a gin fizz – it has no soda water.
