Rhubarb Beer Cocktail Recipe

Rhubarb Beer Cocktail Recipe

Perhaps it would be more appropriate to call this a beer mixer, because with only two ingredients, it's incredibly simple.

  • Yield:makes 1 cocktail
  • Active time: 1 minute (with pre-made rhubarb syrup. Syrup takes 30 minutes to make)
  • Total time:1 minute


  • For the Rhubarb Syrup:
  • 2 cups sliced rhubarb
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • For the Cocktail:
  • 1 ounce rhubarb syrup
  • 1 (12-ounce) bottle of Hefeweizen or other wheat beer


  1. 1.

    To make the rhubarb syrup: Combine rhubarb, water, and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over high heat until boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce to a simmer and continue to cook until rhubarb breaks down, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Strain through a fine mesh strainer. Rhubarb syrup will keep for one week in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

  2. 2.

    To make the cocktail: Pour the rhubarb syrup in the bottom of a pint glass. Gently pour the beer over syrup, tilting the glass slightly as you pour to prevent too much foam.
