Rhubarb Syrup (for drinks)

  • 3 cups rhubarb, sliced into 1/2″ pieces
  • 1 ½ to 2 cups sugar (2 cups makes a very sweet syrup/drink)
  • 3 cups water

Place rhubarb, sugar, and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Pour the contents of the saucepan through a sieve, discarding the solids that are left behind in the strainer.  Store, refrigerated, in large jar, or a pitcher with lid.

This is good when ¼ cup of the chilled mixture is combined with club soda, or sparkling water.  Experiment with the ratios.

  1. Oh the fun I’d have experimenting with this in cocktails. Sounds wonderful. Have you tried it in lemonade?

    • We’ve not tried it in lemonade (the fizzy kind in the UK, or in the juice kind in N.Am), but it would probably be quite nice. Definitely worth trying in cocktails, for its flavour and gorgeous colour!
