Rhubarb Lemon Spritzer

I made this delicious rhubarb drink and took these photos a couple of months ago (back when it was actually rhubarb season). But life has been pretty hectic lately, so I haven’t had a chance to write much recently. I thought that I would stop by today to share the recipe – mostly because I think that the photos turned out quite well. Also, I’ll definitely want to recreate this spritzer next spring (it’s that yummy!) so don’t want to lose track of the recipe. If you happen to be blessed with some rhubarb, please make this drink. It’s perfectly sweet and refreshing, plus plenty tart from the lemon and rhubarb! I think it would be an amazing addition to aΒ late summer picnic.
