Now you're probably thinking....what's with the strange title? Right? I know, it's totally weird. I just didn't quite know what to call this recipe, other than what it was. Rhubarb juice & rum. The lazy man's mojito.
I'm still on my rhubarb kick, and have been loving my rhubarb juice! In fact, I made a giant barch of rhubarb juice and froze two cup portions in mason jars so that I can enjoy rhubarb juice all year! Or at least for as long as it lasts me...
This recipe was born out of a craving for a blended rhubarb drink. I threw rhubarb juice and ice into our blender, then added a bit of coconut rum, and just a sprinkling of sugar. I like things TART! And voila! Rhubarb juice & rum was born. I didn't bother with any club soda, mint leaves or lime, but you totally could just make my proper rhubarb mojitos from a couple of weeks ago, and blend it all up. There's something about a blended drink that I just love so much!
rhubarb & rum (almost a mojito)
yield: 2 drinks
Blend your rhubarb juice, coconut rum, and ice cubes together until desired consistency is reached. Take a taste and add more rum if you'd like. Add sugar until you're satisfied! (I usually only add about a teaspoon, since I like it quite tart!)
*You'll notice that your drink will separate fairly quickly, so be sure to keep stirring it as you drink!
1 cup rhubarb juice
1/4 cup coconut rum (or more!)
10-12 ice cubes
sugar to taste (or honey, agave syrup, or the sweetener of your choice)
I have not quite come to terms with the fact that rhubarb season is quickly drawing to an end....say it isn't so!
