It is officially summer is here in the southern hemisphere. Extended sunny days, hot sun and a desire to spend afternoons sipping cool refreshing beverages whilst relaxing. Is that not what summer is for?
The Rhubarb Gingerbeer cocktail is a drink just worth such an occasion.
It’s an uncomplicated, non muddled drink that leans towards just outrageously simple and yet delicious..
The rhubarb syrup used in the recipe is from an earlier post and adds a wonderfully subtle sweet rhubarb flavour, whilst imparting the glamorous pink hue. The lime juice compliments and brings the 2 main features together. The rhubarb and the ginger beer are both complimented by the tart citrus.
The pretty drink has made it’s appearance just in time for the festive season. All red and green, you couldn’t get much merrier. This drink is definitely making it’s way onto my drinks list. I hope it inspires yours.
Rhubarb and Gingerbeer cocktail
2 tbsp Rhubarb Syrup
1 tsp lime fresh juice
250ml Alcoholic gingerbeer
1 sprig fresh mint leaves
2 slices lime
Into a cup pour out the rhubarb syrup, then the lime juice.
Add the ice, and top up with the gingerbeer.
Add the lime slices and the mint.
To make this a mocktail, use a brewed gingerbeer like bunderberg.
Or add a slice or 2 of fresh ginger and top up with lemonade or soda water.
To make a jug simply triple the recipe.

This looks so delicious and refreshing. I’ve never tried alcoholic ginger beer before. Beautiful photos!
Thanks so much.
John hollows is my personal fav gingerbeer. It’s slightly sweet and delicious. Ginger beard, in the photos is a beer brewed with ginger so it’s slightly bitter (like beer and hops). It’s almost a lager and lime style drink.
I’ll have to try it. Thanks!
That bottle of ginger beard caught my eye on Foodgawker! I love that beer, one of my favourites, and I love the idea of pairing it with rhubarb…mmmmmm
I wonder how this would taste with Bundaberg for the ginger beer, and then add Bourbon for the alcohol…either way this sounds amazing! I will be trying it soon.
