*This post is from 20120 but I wanted to re-share the rhubarb love*


Well, I promised you one last rhubarb recipe for the season and here it is. It’s a goodie…..worth the wait 😉

This is a super simple rhubarb syrup- perfect for adding to a gin & tonic, vodka & lemonade or your favourite cocktail. Or, if you’re no fun, you could just make a nice alcohol-free pink lemonade with this. The flavour is light and sweet with a subtle rhubarb taste, not to mention how beautiful their light pink colour is. Add sunshine + friends + good music for extra enjoyment!
