Our girl Zoey Jean is here to share with us her delicious spin on a classic rhubarb-berry lemonade and we can't wait to try it.

Ingredients

Hi friends! I'm all about Rhubarb EVERYTHING, so I decided to put a cocktail spin on my favorite Rhubarb-Berry Lemonade! It's perfect for any occasion. To make 3 of these cocktails you'll need:

- 1 & 1/4 cups of fresh, chopped Rhubarb,

- 1 cup of frozen mixed berries (I love using strawberries & blackberries),

- 1/2 cup of coconut sugar (I use coconut sugar, but any sugar of your choosing will do!),

- 1 liter of Trader Joe's Sparkling Lemonade (or any carbonated lemon bevy!)

- and to make it all chill...can't forget the ICE!

Step 1.0

The first step to making this savory drink is to prepare the rhubarb/berry syrup that you'll add into the lemonade! This can be a slower process - waiting for the ingredients to boil down - but it gives you a nice moment to tidy up your kitchen or do anything else you might need to before your guests arrive!

In a small/medium sized pot, add the rhubarb, berries, and sugar. Leave on the LOWEST heat setting - after about 10 minutes you'll see a deep red syrupy mixture starting to form. Stir it up a bit and let it keep sitting. You won't break down ALL the berries and rhubarb, but you know it's finished when you have a good amount of the liquid covering the remaining bits. This usually takes about 30 minutes.

Step 2.0

You'll then need to take a fine mesh strainer, and place it over a bowl or large mason jar to strain the liquid from the remaining berries & rhubarb. I usually press into the mixture with a spoon once it's in the strainer in order to get every last bit of juice out of the remaining berries and rhubarb. Once separated, you should have about 3/4 cup of the rhubarb/berry juice mixture. This allows for 1/4 of the mixture to be put into each drink!

Step 3.0

Prepare your glasses with ice and 1 to 1 & 1/2 cups of sparkling lemonade. Add a shot of Vodka, 1/4 cup of rhubarb berry juice, and stir it all up! You can totally put all these ingredients into a shaker as well for optimum flavor blending. This recipe can also be easily altered to make Rhubarb Berry Margaritas as well! An easy non-alcoholic version would mean swapping the sparkling lemonade with fresh lemon juice & adding a portion of water instead of vodka - still summery and refreshing!
