How to cook Strawberry Rhubarb Shrub Sparkler

  1. Combine rhubarb, vinegar, and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Cover, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb is completely broken down and strands are visible.
  3. To a large glass bowl, add rhubarb mixture, strawberries and basil. Using a potato masher, mash all the fruit together so they release their juices. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer and reserve the shrub. Can be kept in the fridge for 2 weeks.
  5. To a large collins glass, combine 2 ounces of shrub and 4 ounces of sparkling water. Ice is optional. Stir, then garnish with a fresh mint sprig.
