I had heard about this drink but never thought to make it until recently. It is delicious.Non alcaholic, fizzy, tart yet sweet, very thirst quenching.


 4 cups chopped raw rhubarb

4 cups white sugar

1/2 cup white or wine vinegar( I used Wine vinegar)

1 lemon.

4 1/2 litres water.


Scrub the lemon, chop up and add to rhubarb in a bucket. Add sugar and vinegar and water. Stir well, cover. Let stand for 48 hours, stirring occasionally to disperse the sugar

Strain and bottle. Use screw caps and check every other day for signs of ppossible blowing out.

Ready to drink 6-9 days after bottling.

 I find it best to place the bottles in a fridge and remove a couple of hours or so before intending to drink  the contents.

 Be careful, sometimes it has quite a "head" on it, like ginger beer does.

I pour over ice in a large glass.
