How to make a strawberry rhubarb mocktail (or cocktail)

This recipe is super easy and while this is written as a single drink recipe, you can make a pitcher for a bigger batch.

  • In a measuring glass, add the diced strawberries and crush/bruise them a bit to release some juices.
  • Add 1 cup of strawberry flavored sparkling water
  • Stir in 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of the rhubarb drink concentrate (depending on how sweet you’d like it).
  • Pour into a glass with ice and garnish with a strawberry

One thing I did mess up in the recipe video: I recommend crushing/bruising the strawberries before you add any liquid to the cup or measuring glass, it’s much easier!

I forgot that I was going to do that first originally, and added the strawberries after my sparkling water and juice concentrate, making it harder to actually crush the strawberries.

How to make this mocktail a cocktail

I can’t have alcohol these days since I get crazy awful sinus headaches from just a few sips (more than likely a histamine intolerance). But if you can have alcohol, you can easily make this Strawberry Rhubarb Mocktail a cocktail.

If you want this to be made into a cocktail, just add a shot of your favorite strawberry or rhubarb flavored liqueur to this drink.

Here are a few options:

Finding rhubarb drink concentrate

We used the IKEA rhubarb drink concentrate (dryck rabarber) for this recipe, but it’s not available online at all unless you’re willing to spend $17.50 a bottle which is ridiculous since it’s sold in IKEA stores for only $4.99.

I have long been frustrated by the fact that IKEA doesn’t ship since it’s about a 6-8 hour drive to the nearest IKEA for us. I had never been to an IKEA, but on our trip to Utah last month, we took some time to stop by the IKEA in Salt Lake City and I loved it.

We bought a few things that had been on my wish list from them for literally years. I should have stocked up on the rhubarb concentrate since it was so delicious! Now it’s gone and I can’t get anymore (sad face).

If you don’t have access to an IKEA to buy this pretty bomb rhubarb drink concentrate, then you can try a few other options.

Please note that we haven’t actually tried any of these products or recipes, and you might have to use a different ratio of syrup to sparkling water depending on the brand or recipe you’re using.
