Rhubarb, Lychee & Raspberry Spritzer

This beautiful concoction comes from our beloved member @morgan who says “this was gorgeous enough to cause the drinkers to abandon their wines, so make plenty!  I put the syrup in a jar in the fridge for further drinks, & to ensure I had some for myself – drinkers can be so utterly grasping & thoughtless! I think this would also be wonderful with guavas, strawberries, apricots when they arrive, or tinned – anything lovely 🙂


2 sticks of Rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups tap water
Handful of Raspberries (frozen or fresh)
Soda water
Lemon (optional)


First make a syrup. Cut the rhubarb into pieces and add to a pot with the raspberries, tap water and sugar.

Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes, then run the mixture through a sieve so you are left with a sweet syrup. Cool.

When you are ready to make a drink add half a cup of syrup to a glass & add ice, lychees, a couple more raspberries, soda water, some lychee juice and fresh lemon juice  if want a little bite to it.

Happy playing with heavenly, healthy flavours!!
