To say that I’m a little obsessed with anything rhubarb is kind of an understatement. Rhubarb’s tartness combines perfectly with sweet, which is what makes this Rhubarb Sour cocktail recipe so darn delicious. The rhubarb syrup found in this drink is a cool and unconventional way to use fresh rhubarb from your garden (not to put down the usual rhubarb pie or jam – those are equally welcome too!). This cocktail is also as pretty as it is tasty, so it’s a great option to serve guests. For more recipes like this, be sure to follow me on at Cashmere & Cocktails as well as on Instagram.
