Rhubarb Mojitos

What people who don't like sports do on a Sunday afternoon.
It was a hot summer day and I had been sweating over a hot fry pan for at least an hour willing some cursed tofu to turn colour when an extremely manly friend knocked on my door. The social convention is to offer such a visitor a cold beverage, so I made rhubarb mojitos. Add syrup to muddled mint and white rum, top with carbonated water and serve pink. Look how much fun we're having.

Rhubarb syrup:
2C water
2C sugar
2C rhubarb

Boil for 20 minutes. Strain and jar. Done.

Rhubarb Mojito:
2oz white rum
2oz rhubarb syrup (to taste)
12-16oz fizzy water
1 sprig mint.
Muddle mint, add rum, add syrup, add fizzy water, mix. Drink with silly people.
