Yield: 1 litre, 4 servings
Total Time: 30minutes
Equipment: Saucepan, knife, zester, lemon squeezer, strainer, large bowl, margarita glasses
3¼ cups (770 ml) water
2 small pinches stevia powder
2¼ cups (275 g) rhubarb, chopped coarse
juice, 1 lemon
extra rhubarb for ribbons
In a saucepan, boil the water and stevia powder. Add the rhubarb and simmer for 5-7 minutes. Use the strainer to drain the pink coloured water into a mixing bowl. Do not press as this may push pulp into liquid. Add the lemon juice. Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes or until chilled.
Serve with garnishes such as rhubarb ribbons woven onto the skewers and add raspberries on the skewers and into the bottom of the margarita glasses. Ice can be added as well.
