Author Notes: As out of trend as the Cosmopolitan might be now, I really love its combination of sweet and tart. I'm a newbie to the rhubarb so I thought this cocktail might be a great way of getting at the rhubarb's essence.NakedBeet

Rhubarb Juice

  • 1 pound rhubarb, cut into 1" pieces
  • enough cold water to just cover the rhubarb

  1. Place water, sugar and the rhubarb pieces into a stockpot. Cook on medium high heat and just before it comes to a boil, simmer the rhubarb for an additional 30 minutes.
  2. Strain the rhubarb pieces from the water through a cheesecloth to get a clear pink liquid. Cool to room temperature and keep refrigerated. Use the reserved juice for the Cosmo or a pink lemonade.
