Author Notes: I love this easy to make Rhubarb Margarita. Yes, that's right! Rhubarb is not just for pies, crisps or cobblers. It makes the perfect summer time margarita. So make a batch of rhubarb simple syrup and try this drink. And hey, if you have leftovers make the kids a rhubarb soda float! They'll love you forever. localhaven

Rhubarb Simple Syrup

  • 4 cups Rhubarb

  3. Lower heat to a simmer and cook for about 40 minutes, until the fruit is soft.
  4. Using a heatproof bowl, place fine mesh strainer over top and ladle rhubarb and liquid into the strainer, pressing on the solids with the back of a spoon to release more juice.
