Along with our house, Steve and I inherited carrots, potatoes, strawberries and rhubarb. Jack. Pot. The rhubarb is the only one ready to be harvested, so yesterday I decided to concoct a sparkling rhubarb drink with ingredients I had in the house. The recipe:
1 oz vodka
3 oz ginger ale
1 tbsp rhubarb simple syrup
2 ice cubes
The recipe for the simple syrup can be found here and is also below.
Rhubarb Simple Syrup
2 cups rhubarb, cleaned and chopped
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
Add ingredients to a saucepan and cook until mixture reduces by a third. Rhubarb will be completely soft and sugar dissolved. Strain through cheesecloth to remove all fibers.
