This rosy syrup is a great way to enjoy fresh rhubarb in the spring, but it's also delish when made with frozen rhubarb year-round. Use the syrup as the base for a Rhubarb Mint Fizz  or mix it with club soda or your favourite sparkling water for a refreshing mocktail.

In saucepan over medium-high heat, bring rhubarb, sugar, 1 cup water and lemon zest to boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until rhubarb breaks down and mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

Strain into bowl, pressing solids gently to extract liquid; discard solids. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.

: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 5 days.
