Rhubard Water

Updated: Jun 12, 2021

Rhubarb is the perfect seasonal root— refreshing, versatile and the most beautiful pale pink color! I particularly enjoy this preparation of rhubarb because it infuses so well and loses some of the bitterness in the process to produce a lovely summer drink. While I mostly remained true to the original recipe, I added rose water for an extra flavor.


  • 3 stalks rhubarb

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 cups boiling water

  • 1 tablespoon rose water

Yields: serving for 2

Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: none


  1. Wash the rhubarb and cut into 1/2 inch lengths.

  2. Place the rhubarb in a bowl. Add the sugar and the water.

  3. Cover and set in a cool area for a few hours.

  4. Strain into a pitcher and add the rose water.

  5. Serve over ice.
