More rhubarb cocktails

For my pal Cindy, in smokin’ hot Katy, Texas: girl, you need this to cool yourself down!

I am not even gonna lie about it, this recipe is straight from page 69 of Jamie Oliver’s Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life. Thank you for sharing, JO.

Rhubarb bellini
makes 6

300 g rhubarb, trimmed and finely sliced (this is equal to about 1 and a half cups)
75 g sugar (equals 1/3 cup sugar)
a bottle of bubbly, such as Champagne or Prosecco

Get yourself a small pan and throw in the rhubarb, sugar and a couple tablespoons of water. Put a lid on top, bring to the boil and simmer for a couple of minutes. Remove the lid and simmer for a few more minutes, stirring occasionally, until you get a thick compote consistency. Whiz up with a hand blender or regular blender until you have a lovely smooth puree. Leave to cool, then stire again and divide the puree between six glasses. Pour over your Prosecco or Champagne, stirring as you pour, with a long spoon or something similar, until the glass is three-quarters full. Top it up with bubbles and you’re done/ Cheers!

  1. Oh, MY. Oh, MY oH MY oh MY. Mary Ann, bless you for sharing this! I shall make it as soon as I can find rhubarb. I’ll have to make a special trip to Whole Foods or Central Market, I suspect. My friends and I will toast you when we drink it!

  2. I thought my mother had every recipe for fixing rhubarb there was, but I’m sure she doesn’t have this one! Too bad she rarely drinks, but maybe if I show this to her, she’ll fix it for our next family get-together:)
