This refreshing lemonade is one of my new summer favorites. It's perfect for a hot summer day or in the evening with vodka or gin.
1/2 kg Rhubarb
8 Green cardamom pods
200 g Cane sugar
1 L Water
1 dL Lemon juice
Cut the rhubarbs into small pieces and put cardamom pods, rhubarbs, cane sugar and water into a large pot. Bring to boil, cover with a lid, and boil for a few minuttes. Remove the pot from the heat, add freshly squeezed lemon juice and coole off in the refrigerator over night.
Pass the lemonade through a strainer and store it cold in a large bottle until use.
Dilute the lemonade 1:4 (or as you feel) with sparkling water in a glass with lots of fresh mint and ice cubes. Enjoy!
