I think it's like a rhubarb simple syrup, right? Here are a few recipes you could use it in: https://food52.com/recipes/35944-rhubarb-bellini, https://food52.com/recipes/4547-rhubarb-and-rose-ramos-gin-fizz, https://food52.com/recipes/4162-rhubarb-lime-spritzer, https://food52.com/recipes/21820-rhubarb-rumble

Its a "drink concentrate"- Havent opened it yet but I imagine its close to a syrup. Thanks:)

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.
