Art In the Age of Mechanical Reproduction – “R⁴ or R to the 4th” Cocktail with RHUBY (Rhubarb Tea)

Last week I had the great pleasure to attend a very nicely done trade/media event put on by Art In the Age of Mechanical Reproduction at Rosewood Bar to try their spirit called RHUBY soon to be called  “Rhubarb Tea”. Shout out to Laura Price for making it fabulous! 

I really enjoyed the bar area and the staff were fantastic at Rosewood.

Above is the lineup of the cocktails they had prepared for us to try with the Rhuby (Rhubarb Tea) spirit made from all organic  Rhubarb, Beets, Carrots, Lemon, Petitgrain, Cardamom, Pink peppercorn, Coriander, Vanilla and Pure cane sugar. It is 80 proof but light, smooth, refreshing with a bit of a citrus note and spice . My favorite of these were the Rhubarb Cup and the Rhuby Aperitivo. Just delicious. BUT they are geniuses at Art in the Age and had a MAKE YOUR OWN bar! 

So you KNOW I had to play around and make my own.

Here’s what I came up with:

I call it “R to the 4th” or “R⁴”

3 oz Rhuby (Rhubarb Tea) spirits

2 shakes Peychaud’s Bitters

Very lightly muddled yellow raspberries

A teensy bit of fresh rosemary torn in teensy pieces

Juice from half a large or 1 small lime

Shake, pour into jar (I didn’t strain mine.)

Top off with seltzer or soda water (I wanted champagne, but well, they didn’t have it on this bar.)

I’d also like to try a variation with gin and champagne and 1.5 oz of Rhuby

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
