Ingredients
  • 1 pound rhubarb (approximately 8-10 stalks)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 quart Seltzer Water
  • Ice
Instructions
  1. Start by scrubbing the rhubarb stalks.
  2. Chop the stalks into small pieces, roughly 1" in size.
  3. Place the rhubarb pieces, water, and sugar into a medium saucepan.
  4. Bring the mixture to a boil. Once it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, and let cook for 30 minutes.
  5. Set the pan aside for mixture to cool and thicken.
  6. When it has cooled completely, pour the syrup into a fine-mesh sieve with a bowl underneath it.
  7. Let the mixture drain for approximately one hour, or until the liquid has separated from the rhubarb pulp.
  8. Store strained syrup in a mason jar in the refrigerator.
  9. To make the soda itself, put 3 tablespoons of the cooled syrup into the bottom of a glass.
  10. Top with 1 cup of seltzer water and mix well to combine.
  11. Add ice to the glass.
