I had originally wanted to make a fun rhubarb cocktail for this post, but since I have a half marathon coming up this weekend I needed all the hydration I could get! And aren’t mocktails the new cocktails anyway…? So here is a delightful rhubarb agua fresca with muddled strawberry & a splash of lime. Early summer in a glass!
For one drink you will need:
2 oz rhubarb simple syrup (recipe below)
6 oz seltzer
Juice of 1/2 a lime
Smash the strawberry in the bottom of your glass with a muddler or a spoon, add the lime juice and rhubarb simple syrup and top off with some seltzer. Done!
To make the rhubarb simple syrup combine 1 large stalk of rhubarb, sliced into 1/2 inch slices (about 1 cup), 1 cup sugar, and 1 1/2 cups water in a small saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer over medium heat until the rhubarb is falling apart. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve, cool, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator!
