Nothing says spring quite like the sour-sweet zing of rhubarb; it’s an elegant, irresistible flavour quite unlike any other. Sure, rhubarb is delicious in desserts and cakes, but once you’ve tried it in a Rhubarb Spritz, you’ll realise that it’s the most exquisite addition to pretty much any cocktail. And paired with a spritz of Maison Mumm’s finest Rosé Champagne? Cocktails don’t get much better than this, really. A Rhubarb Spritz is also oh-so-easy to make – no complex mixology skills or outlandish ingredients, we promise.
Champagne cocktails may be a little bit of a treat but life is short – so a Rhubarb Spritz is actually exactly what you should be sipping of a Tuesday evening. Or a Thursday. Or Friday. You get the picture. Mumm’s Rosé Champagne is a pale coral pink colour, with subtle hints of red fruit flavours and a multitude of fine bubbles – a fragrant Champagne which works beautifully in cocktails. We also LOVE that Maison Mumm’s motto is: “Only the best” – an epithet we definitely agree with. So cheers, here’s to a cocktail or two to really celebrate spring!
60 ml rhubarb syrup (we use this recipe)
Mumm Rosé Champagne
Place a good handful of mint in a cocktail shaker and muddle with a rolling pin to release the flavour. Add ice cubes, rhubarb syrup and a squeeze of lemon and shake well. Strain and pour into two Champagne flutes, before topping up with chilled Mumm Rosé Champagne. Garnish with a few mint leaves or a fine slice of lemon peel. Warning: these cocktails are very, very moreish – the above recipe should serve two, but you may want to make more once you’ve tried your first Rhubarb Spritz!
