It’s the tail-end of rhubarb season, but there’s still time to cook up a batch of this delicious syrup and be on your way to a refreshing summer drink.
Rhubarb Soda (adapted from culinate.com)
1 1/2 cups rhubarb, coarsely chopped
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup water
sparkling water or club soda
Simmer the rhubarb, sugar and water in a small saucepan for about 15 minutes, until the rhubarb pieces are very soft and the liquid is pink. Cool the syrup, then strain into a jar. (This syrup can be kept in the fridge for a few weeks.) To complete your soda, simply mix your rhubarb syrup with soda water to taste, then pour over ice.
