Honey Rhubarb Lemonade Spritzer


Nothing beats a tangy, refreshing and ice cold drink when its getting this hot. As per usual, I have an abundant amount of rhubarb in the fridge, so including it just seemed like the obvious option.

This is my take on a simple syrup- it’s only made with honey (and an option to add some stevia). It’s easy and stores in the fridge for at least a week (tbh, I haven’t tried longer, but I’m exploring that and also freezing it).

Customize this drink as you want and use this as a starting point. Let me know if you make any adjustments or additions! P.S. I think some gin or vodka would go real well in this (I just haven’t tried it).

Honey Rhubarb Lemonade Spritzer

Recipe adapted from Food 52
Servings 1 serving
Total Time 30 mins

Rhubarb Honey Syrup (makes about 1 cup)

  • 5 ounces rhubarb, diced (about 1 stalk)
  • 3 tablespoons honey, (if not using stevia, add in another tablespoon of honey)
  • 6 ounces water, (3/4 cup)
  • 2 packets stevia

Rhubarb Lemonade Spritzer

  • 3 ounces rhubarb honey syrup, 1/3 cup
  • 2 ounces fresh lemon juice, 1/4 cup
  • 2 ounces lime sparkling water
  • mint, for garnish (optional)

Make the Rhubarb Honey Syrup

  • Place rhubarb, honey, and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and let cool just slightly before straining it through a colander to remove the rhubarb “pulp”. Try to get as much liquid from the rhubarb when straining.
  • Immediately after straining, add in stevia and stir to dissolve. Then let cool completely. It will be more liquidy than a typical simple syrup, but trust me on it.

Make the Lemonade

  • Combine all ingredients. Taste and adjust as desired.
