Prosecco Cocktail with Rhubarb Syrup

Lightly sweet, this cocktail adds a touch of sweetness to prosecco and incorporates my favorite Spring ingredient: rhubarb. Adding the beet to the rhubarb syrup gives it a little extra color and flavor. Eliminate the vodka if you want to offer something with less alcohol.


2 CUPS rhubarb, chopped (about 2 stalks)
1 small cooked beet, diced
2/3 CUP organic cane sugar
1 CUP water
zest and juice from 1 lemon

Combine ingredients in a small saucepan, allow to simmer. Lower the heat, then cook till rhubarb is soft, about 20 min. Allow to cool a little. Run through a sieve to get just the liquid. (You can reserve the rhubarb to top ice cream for dessert). Transfer the syrup to a squirt bottle and refrigerate.


1 oz vodka
2 oz rhubarb syrup

Mix the vodka and syrup together with a spoon in a champagne glass, then top with prosecco.
