Ingredients

For Strawberry-Rhubarb Honey Simple Syrup
1 cup honey
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups strawberries, hulled and halved
3 rhubarb stalks, sliced

For Honeyed Strawberry-Rhubarb Mimosa
2 ounces chilled strawberry-rhubarb honey simple syrup
4 ounces Champagne
Strawberry, for garnish, optional


Instructions

For Strawberry-Rhubarb Honey Simple Syrup

  1. In a small saucepan, stir together honey and water. Add strawberries and rhubarb and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir to dissolve the honey and periodically mash the fruit. A potato masher works especially well for this, though you could also use a wooden spoon or wide spatula.
  2. Once it comes to a boil and the honey dissolves, turn off the heat. Give the fruit another mash to release its flavors. Allow to steep for about 30 minutes. Strain, pushing down on the fruit to extract as much syrup as possible, and chill. This can be done ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a couple weeks.
