Rhubarb Mojito

Hello folks! I am finally back!

First of all, thank you all for your kind birthday wishes!

Over three weeks off without blogging – I don’t recall when it happened last time!

In fact, we were returned from our Croatian trip on May 20th. But I didn’t have any strength to get back to the blog until today. Well, truth be told, I am still not 100% ready – just forcing myself! Don’t you think that every good vacation, especially those that involve travelling, require another vacation, to rest from the first one? :)

Our vacation was wonderful despite of many rainy days – beautiful country, impressive history and heritage, delicious foods, and many cats. That’s in a nutshell. Hopefully, I share some photographs within next couple of weeks.

Mojito Ideas

Refreshing mojito. What can be better on a hot sunny day? I’ve got a few on my blog:

Passion Fruit Mojito

Lavender Mojito

Rose Mojito

Lilac Mojito

Rhubarb Mojito

This refreshing twist on the classic Mojito uses rhubarb for fun fruity flavour and beautiful colour. This cocktail is super easy to make. Just please keep in mind that you will need to make rhubarb syrup in advance. And you will need only five ingredients: rhubarb syrup, fresh mint leaves, limes, white rum, and soda water (club soda)

Definitely, you will need the entire batch of the rhubarb syrup. The leftovers will stay fresh refrigerated, and you can utilize it for making lemonades, cocktails, or simply serving with pancakes, yogurt, or oatmeal.

Easy and so luscious!

I hope you like this cocktail, and you will give it a try soon. If you try it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.

Cheers!

Refreshing and delicious Rhubarb Mojito made with homemade rhubarb syrup

Ingredients

  • Rhubarb Syrup:
  • 1 lb. (450 gr.) rhubarb, chopped into 1/2 inch chunks

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup (200 gr.) granulated sugar

  • Rhubarb Mojito (1 serving):
  • 2 oz. white rum

  • 2 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 to 1.5 oz. rhubarb syrup

  • 10-12 mint leaves

  • a small handful of ice, crushed (optional)

  • soda, to top

  • Lime slices, mint leaves, and long strips of rhubarb, to garnish

Directions

  • Rhubarb Syrup:
  • Add rhubarb, water, and sugar, salt to a sauce pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Off heat and let it cool for 30 minutes; while cooling, the mixture will infuse even more.
  • Use a fine mesh strainer to strain the juice from the rhubarb. Press the rhubarb gently with a spoon to get more juice from it. You can discard the rhubarb pulp or use it as a topping for oatmeal, granola, or for baking.
  • Transfer the syrup to a clean bottle or container. Use as much as you need for this recipe and keep the leftovers refrigerated, for up to 4 weeks.
  • Rhubarb Mojito:
  • In a tall glass or shaker, muddle mint leaves with the rhubarb syrup, and lime juice.
  • Stir in the rum. Try and add more of the rhubarb syrup (or maybe lime or rum), if desired.
  • Top with some ice and soda water before garnishing with mint, lime slices and rhubarb. Enjoy immediately!

    Welcome back, Ben! I’m sure you wish you were still on vacation. :-) We missed here, though! Looking forward to seeing the photos. This cocktail is such a good idea for this time of the year! I don’t think I’ve ever come across rhubarb in a mojito – but the flavors totally work together. Pass me one, please!
