Rhubarb and Star Anise Bellini Mocktail/ Rhubarb & Star Anise Spritzer

Serves 6

  • 500g rhubarb
  • 3 tsp caster sugar
  • 1 star anise

Put the rhubarb, sugar, and a splash of water in a pan and bring to simmer until the rhubarb is soft. Take it off the heat, let it cool, and leave for a few hours for the star anise to infuse.
