I think it's like a rhubarb simple syrup, right? Here are a few recipes you could use it in: https://food52.com/recipes..., https://food52.com/recipes..., https://food52.com/recipes..., https://food52.com/recipes...

So I opened the bottle up last night and made some simple Rhubarb martinis with Gin and fresh lime juice- 2 oz Gin 2 oz Rhubarb concentrate 1 oz lime. It was sweeter than I expected but all my guests liked it. I prefer a less sweet drink so I wonder if next time I will use less concentrate and maybe a splash of another kind of juice like cranberry or something.

Bummer that it was on the sweeter side. Maybe a twist on a French 75 using the rhubarb in place of the sugar? Using a dry sparking wine in addition to gin might help curb the sweetness.
