Rhubarb syrup for cocktails or lemonade.


The recipe for this rhubarb syrup is perfect to make even after the rhubarb season a delicious drink.

The preparation is really easy and you can enjoy the great rhubarb flavor all year round. No matter if you pour some of it into water, or make it into a delicious cocktail, the syrup is good for everything. However, you need to preserv it for a longer shelf life. But that’s not much work.


Incidentally, I read about the rhubarb syrup from Julia von Zartbitter and Zuckersüss and had to make one myself. She also has other great recipes on her blog, drop by is worth it!
