12 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup spritzer and 1 lime slice)

Fresh rhubarb works best for this recipe, but frozen will do in a pinch. Its characteristically tart taste combines well with lime juice and sugar for a refreshing springtime beverage. You can add sparkling wine instead of water for adults.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Strain mixture through a sieve into a bowl, pressing rhubarb with the back of a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard solids. Cool to room temperature. Stir in juice. Cover and chill.

Step 2

Stir in sparkling water just before serving. Garnish with lime slices.
