It’s one of the best ways to capture the taste of summer in a glass bottle. Rhubarb syrup is extremely easy to make and can be used in multiple refreshing ways. You can add it to homemade iced tea or simply serve with sparkling water and plenty of ice cubes. I highly recommend a cocktail made of rhubarb syrup and wheat beer, with a hint of lemon and fresh mint. If you plan a summer evening on a terrace, make a spritzer with crisp white wine and sparkling water or pleasantly chilled prosecco.
