This strawberry rhubarb gin smash recipe is a refreshing, colorful cocktail that's perfect for summertime – or year round! It's simple to make at home but it tastes like something a fancy mixologist whipped up.
Raise your hand if you love front porch sitting. And patio sitting. And rooftop sitting. And wherever else you can sit outside at dusk, appreciating life, good company, and an easy sipping cocktail. 🙋♀️ As for me, I'm gonna be back-of-the-new-house-makeshift-balcony sitting all summer long. Yep, that's a thing now. That's where we enjoyed this gin smash after a long day of painting and making a trip to the paint store, and then painting some more.
There have been a lot of days like that since we moved into our new house. A lot of cleaning. A lot of painting. A lot of decision-making. Not near enough relaxing. Every once in a while, it's good to take a break. The next project can wait because summer isn't gonna last forever. (No matter how much I wish it would.)
So right now? We're making gin smashes. Because the strawberries are SO good right now. And I got a batch of fresh rhubarb from my local source. 😉 And I snipped some insanely fragrant, fresh mint from our little herb garden.
All of these things just so happen to go perfectly with a couple ounces of Prairie Organic Gin. Mhmm... in the spirit of this cocktail, we're using gin that's distilled in the Midwest, AND it's made with organic corn that's grown on independent family farms. These farmers provide the highest quality ingredients and it makes a world of difference in the flavor of the gin. 😍 😍 😍
This strawberry rhubarb gin smash is my new favorite cocktail for several reasons:
- It's a gin cocktail. And you already know I love gin. BUT – this is a Prairie Organic Gin cocktail, to be exact. Botanical, smooth, award-winning(!) gin perfection. It doesn't taste like any other gin, and the Prairie Organic team has worked hard to achieve that differentiation. This gin is not piney or perfumey. It's delicate and balanced, and therefore it compliments almost any cocktail combination. 🙌
- This cocktail is so simple to make but it looks and tastes fancy. It's a guaranteed showstopper. Your friends might just think you completed a mixology class over the winter.
- That COLOR. I mean, come on. If you've never seen a Midwest sunset, now you know what it looks like. 💁♀️ THIS drink.
Make a batch of these gin smashes for your friends, or for you and your significant other, or just for yourself, whatever. And enjoy them outside. You can find a bottle of Prairie Organic Gin using the store locator on their website. Trust me, it elevates the experience. 😘
