(recipe, Carrie Floyd)

The ever-popular Cosmopolitan is basically a kamikaze tinted pink with cranberry juice. Rhubarb syrup colors and flavors this Cosmo for a delicious seasonal cocktail. For a non-alcoholic drink, pair rhubarb syrup with seltzer water for a refreshing soda.


  1. 2 shots vodka (Monopolowa is nicely neutral)
  2. ⅔ cup freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice
  3. ⅓ cup rhubarb syrup
  4. Lime half-moons for garnish


  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then pour in the vodka, the citrus juice, and the rhubarb syrup. Shake vigorously, then strain into two martini glasses. Garnish with half-moons of lime.
