Wild Oats

Whisky Dinner Wine Kitchen

This cocktail was one of the favorites of our recent St. Patrick's Day Spirits Dinner at The Wine Kitchen on the Creek in Frederick, Maryland.  Perhaps the most surprising flavor in this cocktail is the infusion of the oats into the gin.  It gives the cocktail a warm, very satisfying flavor and texture.

2 oz Oat-infused Catoctin Creek Watershed Gin*
1 oz Strawberry syrup**
3-5 coins of rhubarb
Sparkling water

Strawberry garnish

Muddle the rhubarb in the strawberry syrup.  Add the gin and shake with ice.  Strain to a rocks glass with ice.  Top with sparkling water and garnish with a strawberry.

*Oat-infused Watershed Gin

2 c Oats
2 c Watershed Gin

Mix/infuse the oats in the gin.  Steep the mixture for 24-48 hours.

Separate the oats from the gin.  (Let the solids settle from the gin, then pour through a coffee filter.)

**Strawberry Syrup

1½ c sugar
1 c water
6-8 chopped strawberries.

Combine sugar with water, bring to a boil. Steep the chopped strawberries in the syrup for 20-25 minutes.  Remove strawberries.
