Summer Spritzer

14 Jun

Kick off the summer with this refreshing drink, courtesy of Lark & Linen who adapted it from Reading My Tea Leaves. It’s a Rhubarb Lilac Spritzer. It can be alcoholic or non-alcoholic.

INGREDIENTS (serves 20)
  1. 5-6 stalks rhubarb, chopped into 1″ pieces
  2. 1 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 cup water
  4. 1 large handful of lilac blossoms, removed from the stem
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. In a medium sized pot, over medium heat, bring all ingredients just to a boil.
  2. Turn to low, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes until sugar is disolved and rhubarb begins to separate. Strain through a fine mesh sieve and store in a glass jar in the fridge.
NOTES
  1. Mix your syrup into sparkling water, add vodka to make it sinful, or pour over vanilla ice cream.
