Rhubarb Spritzer

I can't get enough of the rhubarb.  I sent a message to my gardening colleagues asking for more.  I found a recipe for rhubarb concentrate to preserve so I think I'm going to try that.

In the meantime, today I made concentrate for spritzer

Rhubarb Spritzer

2 lbs rhubarb
2 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup sugar
2 tblsp lime juice
sparkling water

Combine chopped rhubarb with sugar and water.  Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 min.  Strain, pressing on fruit to get all the juice.  Discard fruit remains.  Cool, add lime juice.  Combine with sparkling water.

  1. mmmmm, looks and sounds good.

    I'm bummed though - my son - who has been voluntarily mowing the yard - mowed my rhubarb. Frankly, it wasn't growing great where it was so I'll buy more and put it someplace else...
