INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 1/4 cup water

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

  • 2 cups ice cubes

DIRECTIONS

1 Combine the fennel seeds and water in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until the fennel seeds have softened, about 2 minutes. Add the rhubarb, sugar and lemon zest; reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the rhubarb is soft and fragrant, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the lemon juice.

2 Squeeze the mixture through a  fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and let cool. Pour the syrup into a large pitcher. Stir in the water and ice. Garnish with the lemon and rhubarb slices and fennel fronds; serve chilled.
