Rhubarb Collins

Rhubarb Collins

Growing up in Indiana, rhubarb was always in season around my birthday on my grandparents’ farm. Whenever my grandma would ask what I wanted for a birthday meal, I’d ask for this stewed rhubarb recipe she made. (Which turns out to be basically rhubarb simple syrup, so of course it was delicious.) I completely forgot about that recipe until this weekend and have been searching around the city for a grocery with rhubarb in stock. Rhubarb feels like one of those delightfully-obscure yet universally-pleasing flavors like elderflower. ???
