Rhubarb Mimosa

5 Spring Cocktails- Rhubarb Mimosa

This drink is adapted from Marc Forgione, one of my favorite Tribeca restaurants.

To make a pitcher of Mimosas:


  • 2 cups rhubarb, cut into ½ inch pieces
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 sprig mint
  • 1 bottle prosecco, very well chilled
  • Several small chunks of rhubarb, uncooked, for garnish.


  1. Combine rhubarb, sugar and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Stirring occasionally, bring to a boil and cook until rhubarb is broken down, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add mint.
  2. After several minutes strain the mixture, which should be the consistency of a syrup. Cover and refrigerate until cool.
  3. Pour one tablespoon of rhubarb syrup into a fluted glass and top with prosecco. Garnish with raw rhubarb. Serve immediately.
