While I am no longer addicted to Diet Coke, I am NOW addicted to Tazo Pomegranite Plum Bottled Tea.
Addiction is a terrible thing. Not only is this tea expensive and hard to find, it has quite a bit of sugar.
I decided to make my own syrup to add to my won tea. My first try was Rhubarb Syrup!
I started with 2 cups freshly picked rhubarb, sliced. Frozen would also work.
4-5 lemon peels...not the white part, just the peel, from one lemon.
In the pan is 2 cups Rhubarb, 4-5 peels from 1 lemon, 1 Cup Sugar, 3 Cups Water. Cook and Stir until Mushy. You could also add a handful of strawberries.
Drain the Rhubarb Mixture in a cheesecloth lined collander over a large bowl. Let it drain for a while. Then refrigerate.
TaDaaah! Rhubarb Syrup!
I mixed my Rhubarb Syrup with Q Tonic Water. You could mix the juice with anything, though. Sparkling Water, Other Fruit Juices, or Tea.
Clean. Crisp. Refreshing. Delicious. Q Tonic and Homemade Rhubarb Syrup.
