In this alcohol-free libation, the rhubarb shrub mimics the flavor and intensity that alcohol would bring to a gimlet. We prefer this in a 6 or 7-ounce glass without too much seltzer to dilute.

  • Yield:serves 2
  • Active time: 5 minutes
  • Total time:5 minutes


  • 2 ounces Rhurbarb Shrub
  • 1/2 ounce fresh juice from 1 lime
  • 1/2 ounce maple syrup, preferably grade B
  • Seltzer, chilled


  1. 1.

    Add rhubarb shrub, lime juice, and maple syrup to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake until well chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into two 6 or 7 ounce glasses, add ice, top with seltzer, and serve immediately.
