  • Remove from the heat, add the mint and let sit 1 minute, then strain the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. 
  • The mixture should be syrupy. If it's too watery, return to the pot and continue cooking until the mixture is slightly reduced. 
  • Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour.

  • Divide the frozen blueberries among 3-4 glasses.
  • Divide the blended raspberry-rhubarb mixture among each glass. Pour the sparkling waterinto each glass. Add your blueberry stick and swirl to mix. Garnish with a few fresh raspberries and a sprig of mint. Drink!
