Rhubarb Four Ways

We’ve surprisingly seen a fair amount of rhubarb at farm stands so late in the season this year. We froze some for baking in the fall but also put some aside to create these refreshing summer cocktails.


Each of these recipes calls for a rhubarb simple syrup. To make the syrup, add 2 cups sugar and 3 large rhubarb stalks chopped into ½ inches to 3 cups of cold water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh strainer, gently pressing the rhubarb pieces to release any additional liquid.
