Sparkling Rhubarb Mint Shrub

Sparkling Rhubarb Mint Shrub

Yield 1 mocktail

Tangy rhubarb and fresh mint make this summery sparkling drink colorful and refreshing.

Ingredients

1/2 cup water

1/2 cup sugar

3/4 cup chopped rhubarb

10 mint leaves

2 ounces Clover Valley Rhubarb-Mint Shrub

4 ounces sparkling water

Instructions

In a medium saucepan, combine water, sugar, and rhubarb. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until all of the sugar has dissolved and the rhubarb is very tender. Remove from heat; add the mint, muddle the rhubarb and mint to release the flavors and set aside 1 hour to cool. Strain the syrup and refrigerate for up to one week. Makes about 1 cup.

Fill a glass with ice. Add the Clover Valley shrub, 2 ounces of the rhubarb simple syrup, and sparkling water. Stir gently to blend. Garnish with rhubarb, mint, and lime, if desired.

Notes

Tip: Use a vegetable peeler to create a thinly sliced rhubarb garnish.
