    Heston's rhubarb fizz

    With its deep pink tinge and seductively unusual combination of flavours, this is the perfect Champagne cocktail for Valentine’s Day. Heston

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Total time: 1 hour 5 minutes 60 minutes

    Serves: 2

    Ingredients

    30g Tate & Lyle Fruit Sugar (or fructose)
    30g white caster sugar
    500g rhubarb, chopped into very thin slices
    20ml grenadine
    24g Chase Rhubarb liqueur (optional, from selected stores)
    ½ vanilla pod, halved and seeds scraped out
    Champagne

    Method

    1. Place the fruit sugar, caster sugar, rhubarb, grenadine, liqueur and the seeds of the vanilla pod into a bowl and cover with clingfilm. Put the bowl over a pan of simmering water, allow to stand for 1 hour. Remove the bowl, strain through a fine sieve and place both the reserved rhubarb syrup and the compote in separate bowls in an iced water bath.

    2. Place 1½ tbsp of rhubarb compote with some of the reserved syrup into 2 chilled Champagne flutes, and fill to the top with chilled Champagne.
