Easy Low FODMAP Rhubarb Ginger Syrup

This low FODMAP Rhubarb Ginger Syrup makes some of the best cocktails and mocktails. It is a little sweet, a bit tart, has a hit of ginger – and it is gorgeous!

Rhubarb Has No Detectable FODMAPs

Rhubarb is combined with sugar, fresh ginger and water and simmered together.

The only part that takes any special attention is when you strain the mixture; you will need a tiny bit of elbow grease.

Bubbles Galore!

I love this Rhubarb Ginger Syrup over ice with sparkling water, but if bubbles do not agree with you, simply pour over ice and water down a bit. A slice of lime is welcomed, as well.

For The Adults

And, if you want a more spirited version, a low FODMAP portion of gin or vodka combine beautifully – as tastefully, literally – as well.
