Rhubarb Syrup Summer Drink

Rhubarb Orange Mocktail
Rhubarb is considered to be a vegetable in some parts of world but in United States, it is considered a fruit and is typically made available at consumer markets in early spring. Due to Rhubarb's beautiful reddish-pink color, it is used as base in varieties of drinks, jams and jellies. I am sharing with you a very easy Rhubarb Orange summer cooler mocktail. You can make this syrup in advance and just before serving, mix with sparkling or plain water to make perfect summer drink for kids. Or add some Vodka or Orange Liquor for an excellent sweet and tangy cocktail.
