Rhubarb Lemonade Spritzer
  • 6cups water
  • 3/4cup natural cane sugar
  • 6cups (about 6 large stalks) coarsely chopped fresh rhubarb
  • Zest and juice of 1 medium-large lemon (about 1 tablespoon zest and 4 scant tablespoons juice)
  1. In a saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Add rhubarb. Return to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add lemon zest and stir gently. Strain into a bowl, allowing pulp to drain for 10 minutes without pressing. Pour liquid into a pitcher and add lemon juice. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. (This can be made several days in advance.)
  2. To serve, mix one portion syrup with an equal portion of unflavored sparkling water or a sparkling wine, such as Italian Prosecco.
