Rhubarb and Custard Fizz

Lack of laptop while it's been getting fixed has made everything rather quiet on this blog after my initial post! In the meantime, I've finished University and thrown myself into full time bartending, entering plenty of competitions (full round up to follow!) and creating different specials for the bar I work at.

The first cocktail special I came up with back in March is the Rhubarb and Custard Fizz - it combines the creaminess of Titos vodka with rhubarb and apricot flavours to make a drink which is very reminiscent of rhubarb and custard sweets. All the nostalgia!

Rhubarb and Custard Fizz:

25ml Titos vodka
25ml Briottet Rhubarb liqueur
20ml apricot syrup
15ml lemon juice
25ml cream soda
2 dashes Peychaud bitters

Shake and strain over crushed ice into a receptacle of your choice; we used tin cans at work, but I think it looks great in a hurricane too (as below). Garnish with dried apricots and rhubarb and custard sweets to bring back childhood memories.
