tequila rhubarb tonic

2 oz Lunazul Tequila
2 oz Rhubarb Syrup(*)
1 pinch Salt

Add to a highball glass with ice. Fill with club soda, garnish with a long lemon twist, and add straw.

For my other drink at Rendezvous, Scott Holliday mixed me something with another one of the syrups he recently had created, a rhubarb one. The tall drink featured tequila which worked surprisingly well with the rhubarb. The lemon oil nose on the drink was a nice touch for it complemented both the rhubarb and tequila flavors. Scott said that the pinch of salt helps to make the drink more rhubarby as well as tequila-y. Moreover, the rhubarb syrup seemed to soften some of the sharpness I associate with tequila and made this refreshing drink very easy to quaff.

(*) While I am not sure of Rendezvous' recipe, I posted the one I cook up at home here.

I could drink those all day - so tasty.

Maybe I should have signed up for Agavepalooza at Tales...
