200ml gin
200ml rhubarb syrup

Ice, to serve

To prepare the rhubarb syrup, place the sugar and water into a saucepan and bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 6 to 7 minutes until a light syrup forms.
Slice the washed trimmed stems into 3cm lengths and add the rhubarb to the syrup, leave to simmer for at least 6 minutes. Switch off and leave to cool completely.
Pour the syrup through a fine sieve and retain the cooked rhubarb pieces for a dessert or over yoghurt.
Pour the syrup into a sterilised bottle and keep it in the fridge. It will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge.
When ready to serve, add the gin to a pretty jug, add rhubarb syrup, the ice, lime slices and mint leaves.
Give it a stir and top up with the tonic water. Serve immediately.
