Here's a drink from Whitehall restaurant in Calgary that celebrates three things at once. The rhubarb is a nod to Canada's seasonal produce, the Hendricks gin is an homage to chef Neil McCue's heritage and the red is perfect toast to Canada's 150th.

So make this on World Gin Day this Saturday. 

Note: the rhurbarb-honey syrup is made with fresh rhubarb juice and Canadian raspberry honey (regular honey would work as well) at a 1:1 ratio.
