Author Notes: Bubbly vodka and grapefruit juice cocktails sweetened with rhubarb syrup.Riley Wofford

Makes: 1 drink

Rhubarb Syrup:

  • 1 cup roughly chopped rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  1. Combine the rhubarb, water, and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Pour the syrup through a fine mesh strainer and press against the solids to extract as much flavor as possible. Let the syrup cool completely.


  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1/2 ounce rhubarb syrup
  • Club soda
  1. Combine the vodka, grapefruit juice, and rhubarb syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake for about 30 seconds, until cold. Strain into a chilled glass, top off with club soda, and serve.
