Springtime Sip

Why should cocktails have all the fun? This flavorful, non-alcoholic refresher is sure to be a crowd-pleaser—even without the booze.

Rhubarb and Ginger Sprizt​er

  • 10 fresh mint leaves
  • ¼ pint rhubarb cordial
  • 2 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ginger switchel
  • 7 oz. sparkling mineral water
  • crushed ice
  • 1 rhubarb, sliced 


  • Blitz the mint leaves, rhubarb cordial, lemon juice and switchel in a blender.
  • Half-fill two chilled highball glasses with crushed ice and ribbons of rhubarb.
  • Pour the rhubarb, ginger and mint mixture over the ice, top with chilled sparkling water and serve. 

If you want to make this an alcoholic drink, this spritzer is a great take on the classic bramble. Add 3 oz. of Tanqueray London Dry Gin and 1 oz. of Crème de Mûre (blackberry liqueur) to yield two bright, refreshing springtime cocktails.”—Frank Pelligra, bar manager, The Orange Lantern, Paramus
