We made it, friends. It's rhubarb season. I spent all winter waiting for it to arrive but when the cravings were too strong to ignore I whipped up this quick n dirty cocktail. I was, yet again, not one of those perfect humans who had a frozen stash. I usually always however have a jar of strawberry rhubarb jam kicking around. While you're busy making rhubarb pies, galettes, ice creams and other treats, tuck this recipe away for the end of the season when you're canning and jamming like crazy, trying to hoard as much rhubarb as you possibly can.

Cheers!
