Rhubarb Mojito

There’s a short season to enjoy fresh-from-the-garden rhubarb and life’s too short not to find reasons for happy hour. That’s why I’m bringing you this Rhubarb Mojito. It’s sweet. It’s tart. Best of all, it’s fresh and refreshing for those early hot summer days.

Making Rhubarb Simple Syrup

The Rhubarb Mojito is a two-part recipe. First, we’ll need to make some rhubarb syrup. Then we can make our Mojitos and hit the patio.

  • 8 oz of rhubarb chopped (1-2 stalks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Rhubarb syrup is very easy to make. Cut your fresh rhubarb from the garden. Reagan loves gardening and she helped me get a few stalks for tonight’s cooking.

Wash and chop them into slices.

In a medium pot: add the sugar, water, and chopped rhubarb over medium heat. Heat until the sugar is dissolved and the rhubarb is soft. It should be 20 minutes to soften the rhubarb. Cool and strain.

Making a Rhubarb Garnish

Take a long stalk of rhubarb and wash it. Then set a mandolin to a very thin slice and carefully run the stalk down the mandoline edge.
