Place the rhubarb, lemon juice, ginger, honey and sugar into a pot. Pour in half the water and turn onto medium heat. Once the water has boiled, turn down heat to a simmer.

Simmer the rhubarb for about 5 – 7 minutes and it is very soft.

Carefully strain out the liquid and chill for at least 1 hour.

Pour over the other four cups of cold water and stir. Taste for sugar level.
