rhubarb spritzer!

 when i stumbled upon a recipe for rhubarb soda, i just couldn't wait to give it a try!
if you like rhubarb, or if you don't... i'm pretty sure you'll like this!

 Rhubarb Spritzer

cups rhubarb, roughly chopped

1 cup sugar

cups water

~ Sparkling water + *

~ Ice
    Place rhubarb, sugar, and 1½ cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cook for about 15 minutes, until the syrup is bright pink.
    Turn off the heat and allow to cool. Strain syrup into a large jar.
    To make each soda, measure ¼ cup rhubarb syrup into a glass. Add enough sparkling water to fill the glass ⅔ full. Stir to mix, then add ice. 
    * i also added a splash of lemonade, which helps take away some of the tart flavor of the rhubarb. i love that tartness, but some do not. it blends well with the rhubarb as well as limeade would i'm sure.
