For one Rhubarb Mojito
- 2 oz. white rum
- 1 oz. rhubarb simple syrup (recipe below)
- 4-5 fresh mint leaves
- 2 oz. club soda
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the rum and simple syrup. Place the mint leaves and a couple of ice cubes into a glass and muddle – or crush until the mint is bruised and broken down into small pieces. Combine the muddled mint with the ice, rum, and rhubarb syrup and shake vigorously. Strain into a glass and top with the club soda. Garnish with a fresh mint leaf.
Rhubarb Simple Syrup
- 1 C. sugar
- 1 C. water
- 1 stalk of rhubarb, sliced
Combine the sugar, water, and rhubarb in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute and set aside to steep for twenty to thirty minutes. Strain through a sieve, pressing on the solids. Discard the solids or eat them (they are yummy).
Looks pretty and delicious – will try this as soon as possible – thanks for posting the simple simple syrup recipe – saves a search! Are the ratios (i.e. 1:1:1) all it takes for the beautiful colour in the pic on the left? (off to buy some rhubarb then!)
Yes, it’s very simple and one stalk was all it took to get that color. Although it was a particularly colorful bunch of rhubarb! Thanks for reading!
Just the right thing for 91 F. Together with the Rhubarb Mini Cheesecakes that are just out of the oven.
