Meet the Girls
Second up was Rosie Paterson from the Voodoo Rooms in Edinburgh, in an-all-pink attire and a dry sense of humor. Her Rhuby cocktail – I’ll fizz your rhubarb (which could have somewhat naughty connotations) showed a great depth of knowledge around the product and ingredients used. Having spent time and understanding on the product and bringing the drink into autumnal mood she started with a cinnamon infused rye, coating the inside of a Champagne flute, left to chill (acting like a bitter).
She then poured into a Boston shaker:
Rosie brought with her warmth and spiced up Rhubarb, garnished with a fresh rhubarb in cinnamon sugar, blow torched to be caramelized.
Her classic Daiquiri she used muddled fresh rhubarb instead of a bitter and showed great craftsmanship on the floor thinking fast and creatively on her feet.
Little Jar of Rhuby was a beautifully presented cocktail poured straight up in a crystal, hand-cut, small tumbler. The base with tequila, vermouth and angostura bitters – Rhuby still managed to show its taste. The drinks were a delight to eye and palette.
