Rhubarb this time of the year is (thankfully) everywhere! This springtime treat makes the perfect companion for a Mojito. Not to mention the rhubarb gives a beautiful color to this traditional cocktail. Cheers!

Ingredients

For rhubarb syrup:
Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Chopped fresh rhubarb 1 Cup (16 tbs)
For mojito:
Lime 1 Small , slice
Fresh mint leaves 10
White rum 3 Ounce
Rhubarb syrup 1 Ounce (see the recipe above)
Club soda 1 Pint
Ice cubes 6

Directions

MAKING:

1.In a small pot over medium high heat add the sugar, water, and chopped rhubarb. Let it come up to a boil and cook for 5 minutes.

2.Turn off the heat and let it come to room temperature

3.In a glass muddle the sliced lime, mint, and rhubarb simple syrup until all of the juices have released.

4.Add in the white rum and give it a stir.

5.Add in ice, stir, and top with club soda and give it another stir.

6.For a garnish I like to take a stalk of rhubarb and with a peeler make a long thin slice. Then I'll take the strip of rhubarb and put it in the glass and make a swirl with it.

7.If you don't want to do that you can always add a sprig of fresh mint! Either way.

SERVING:

8.Serve and enjoy!
