rhubarb lemonade


When I saw beautiful rhubarb at the store I could not resist buying it but I really didn't have time to bake a pie. I decided to make a rhubarb simple syrup that could be used to make lemonade or flavor seltzer. It barely took any time at all and it is delicious and so pretty.



2 1/2 cups sugar

2 1/2 cups water

3 stalks rhubarb, cut into 4 inch lengths, spit in half if stalks are thick.

Combine sugar and water in a medium saucepot and bring to a boil. Add rhubarb and reduce to a simmer. Cook about 10 minutes. Allow syrup to cool before transfering to an airtight container. Refrigerate until ready to use.



1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 1/3 cups rhubarb syrup 

2 cups water

lots of ice

Fill a pitcher with ice and combine lemon juice, rhubarb syrup and water. Stir to combine and serve immediately.
