Ingredients
  • For Simple Syrup:
  • ¾ cup chopped rhubarb
  • ¾ cup whole strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup water
  • 8 large mint leaves
  • For Fizz:
  • 4 oz dry sparkling white wine
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry-rhubarb-mint simple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
Instructions
  1. For Simple Syrup: Place all of the ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and cook uncovered for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the fruit is totally collapsed. Pour the mixture into a fine mesh strainer, or a regular strainer lined with a cheesecloth, and gather the syrup into a bowl or jar. Put it into the refrigerator to chill, then put the fruit puree into a sealed container and save for breakfast!
  2. For Fizz: Pour the sparkling wine into your champagne flute, add the simple syrup, and brandy, if using, and then give it a very gentle stir to combine. Celebrate!
