Some may say it’s not the right season for rhubarb and they would be right to a certain extent. However, you can buy this tart fruit all year round and we urge that you do, if only to make this tasty little number!
Put the sugar and water in a saucepan and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves.
Add the rhubarb and bring to a simmer until it softens. Leave to cool.
Strain over a bowl, pressing down on the rhubarb to extract the juice. Transfer the syrup to a jar or use immediately.
Add all the ingredients for the sour into a cocktail shaker. Shake hard for 30 seconds to froth up the egg white.
