Tart rhubarb stands up to the sharp taste of both fresh ginger and ginger ale in this bubbly mocktail. Make the raspberry-rhubarb syrup ahead, then pour in the ginger ale come party time.

Instructions Checklist
  • For rhubarb syrup: In a medium saucepan combine sugar, 1 cup water, the rhubarb slices, and ginger. Bring to boiling over medium-high, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat; cover. Simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in raspberries. Let stand 10 minutes. Use a potato masher to mash mixture. Strain mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, pressing to remove all juices. Discard pulp. Add lemon juice to rhubarb syrup; cover. Chill 2 to 24 hours.

  • In a pitcher stir together ginger ale and rhubarb syrup. Add lemon slices and additional raspberries. Serve over ice; use rhubarb stalks as swizzle sticks. Makes 14 servings.
