This recipe makes 1 serving. To make it, you will need:

Rhubarb Mint Simple Syrup

  • 2 cup roughly chopped rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 bunch fresh mint

Cocktail

  • Sprigs of fresh mint
  • 40 mls rhubarb mint simple syrup
  • 60 mls lime juice
  • 40 mls white rum
  • Splash sparkling water

 

Method:

  • In a small saucepan, combine the rhubarb with the sugar, water, and mint over a high heat.  Once it comes to a boil, turn the heat down to low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, removing all of the solids so you’re left with a bright pink simple syrup. Allow to cool completely.
  • To make the cocktail, place a few sprigs of fresh mint in the bottom of a glass tumbler.  Muddle in the glass with the back of a teaspoon, or cocktail muddler and topwith crushed ice. Pour in the cooled rhubarb mint simple syrup, add the lime juice, and rum, then top with a splash of sparkling water.
  • Garnish with a bit more mint and a few lime wedges.

Tip: keep the simple syrup in a mason jar in the fridge for up to two weeks.
