Pink gin and rhubarb parfait

Pink gin and rhubarb parfait

Serves 4

1 orange or 2 clementines
4 sticks of rhubarb (if it’s out of season use frozen)
2 tbsp of soft brown sugar
250ml of double cream
3 egg whites
100g of caster sugar
100ml of Pink gin

Here’s how

Cut the rhubarb into 3cm chunks and place them onto a baking tray.
Cut the oranges in half and add to the tray, before sprinkling with the brown sugar.
Roast the rhubarb in the oven for 12 minutes until tender, then remove half of them as well as the oranges and put to one side for decoration.
Return the remaining rhubarb to the oven and cook until soft, then remove and leave to cool.
In a separate bowl, whip the egg white and sugar to create light meringue.
In another bowl whip the cream to a soft peak.
Blend the roasted rhubarb and the Pink Gin, then pour into the cream.
Remove the whisk from the cream and stir in the rhubarb mixture using a spoon as you don’t want to over whip the cream.
Fold the cream mixture and whipped egg whites together carefully making sure you don’t over mix as you will lose the air.
Pour the parfait into a loaf tin lines with two sheets of cling film, before placing in the fridge give the tin a few taps to make sure all the filling has filled the gaps.
Freeze for at least 3 hours before slicing and serving with the remaining roasted rhubarb and orange.

You can also add a final little splash of Pink gin on top of the parfait and fruit to lift the flavour.
