Refreshing Rhubarb and Ginger Mocktail

An easy zero-proof cocktail with zippy, bright flavours.

Move over strawberries, a pairing rhubarb with ginger works just as well. After all, rhubarb balances beautifully with spicy ginger, and together they are a refreshing combination! We’ve added some sugar to sweeten up this rhubarb drink recipe, but if your heart is set on a sour mocktail, you can omit it. Serve as a zero-proof aperitif before dinner, or with sparkling water over ice. You can keep it up to a week in the refrigerator, but we doubt it will last that long.
