  • Calories per serving: 46

erving tip: Beautiful served in tall tumblers or champagne flutes with a long, thin peel of lemon zest swirling around. Use a barkeep's zesting tool to carve a curling slice of peel.

Directions
  1. In a saucepan, bring water and sugar to a boil. Add rhubarb. Return to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add lemon zest and stir gently. Strain into a bowl, allowing pulp to drain for 10 minutes without pressing. Pour liquid into a pitcher and add lemon juice. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. (This can be made several days in advance.)
  2. To serve, mix one portion syrup with an equal portion of unflavored sparkling water or a sparkling wine, such as Italian Prosecco.
