Rhubarb and cardamom syrup
1 cup castor sugar
2 cups water
1 Ttablespoons cardamom pods (lightly crush them with your hand)
750g rhubarb (leaves taken off and rhubarb chopped into 2 inch pieces)
Rhubarb and cardamon soda
45 ml rhubarb and cardamom syrup
5 ml simple sugar syrup
1 lime wedge (squeezed)
Rhubarb and cardamom syrup: Put all ingredients into a pot and bring to boil. Once boiled, bring down to low heat and stir to allow the rhubarb to break down. Only do this for 5 minutes. Take it off the stove and allow to cool.
Using two strainers, double strain rhubarb into another bowl. Refrigerate (the leftover rhubarb is nice with yoghurt or ice-cream).
Assemble: Put all the ingredients into a tall glass. Top up with ice. Give it a stir.
