Try a Frozen Rhubarb Daiquiri, a simple twist on a classic drink.
Nothing says summer like a frozen daiquiri and usually this means strawberries, ice, lime and rum but to change things up a bit we thought we might try it using some rhubarb instead of those strawberries. And we liked it.
Now rhubarb aren’t that great to use raw, at least not for drinks so to do this drink you first have to make a rhubarb compote but don’t worry, it is super simple. Also when making the rhubarb compote you can make a big batch since it can be used for much more than just drinks. Maybe some pancakes with rhubarb the morning after all those drinks or some vanilla ice cream with rhubarb compote. So plan ahead people, here’s how to make the compote. The recipe for the frozen rhubarb Daiquiri comes below.
200g / 7oz fresh rhubarb
80g / 2,8oz water
80g / 2,8oz sugar
½ vanilla pod (optional)
Clean and chop the rhubarb rough, put water, sugar and rhubarb in a pan and bring to a boil. Split the vanilla pod in half and scrape out the seeds and add to the pan. Let the compote simmer for about ten minutes, check the taste and add more sugar if it is too acidic. Leave to cool.
