Rhubarb and Rooibos Cocktail

500g of granulated sugar
15/20g of organic rooibos
2 limes, peels and juice
1 liter of filtered water
Place all the rhubarb batons, sugar, rooibos, lime peel and juice and splash in the water into a large enough container. Stir until the sugar has dissolved and allow to steep for 4-5 days.
Strain the cordial using the muslin cloth and bottle the rhubarb and rooibos cordial into sterilised bottles. Can be stored in the fridge for a month.
