Our barman Paul has chosen something a little bright for our featured non-alcoholic cocktail with rhubarb as the star of the show. This drink consists of some more very easy to make but very versatile syrups – one using rhubarb and another using mint – both of course can be added to other drinks too!
Make and serve this at home for yourself or ask Paul, our resident Memsahib bartender to create for you. If you try this at home or indeed at Memsahib’s then be sure to tag us in your pics – share with us and tag us on Instagram – @memsahibbar #memsahibathome
Drink: Non-alcoholic drink
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Drink serves 1, however, the syrups can be stored and serve many!
1. Home-Made Rhubarb Syrup (1L)
- 700g stalks of fresh rhubarb
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 2L water
Dice the rhubarb and add to a pan with the sugar. Add the boiling water and simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes. Blend the mixture until creamy and then strain. Once cool, store in the fridge for up to 1 month.
2. Home-Made Mint Syrup (1L)
- 350g sugar
- 15-20 sprigs of mint
- 700ml water
In a heat resistant jug, add sugar to boiling water and stir until it has dissolved. Add the mint and mix. Cool the syrup down and store in the fridge for up to 2 months.
3. The Rhubarb Ripple Cocktail

- 50ml rhubarb syrup
- 25ml mint syrup

Chill your coupe glass. In a cocktail shaker, add your raspberries and smash gently and then add all the other ingredients in the shaker with ice and shake for 10-15 sec. Fine strain into the glass and serve and perhaps garnish with fresh rhubarb, mint or raspberry.
