Rhubarb Fizz Cocktail

rhubarb fizz cocktails recipe

Mother’s Day is coming up, did you know that? It is time to get mom a special gift and say thank you for all that she did and still does for us. My mom loves rhubarb, and when I saw this drink (she loves those too) in this month’s Martha Stewart Living, I knew that this would make her very happy. If I am being honest, I was a little scared of rhubarb. First, It is one of those words that I never spell correctly (like definitely and particularly, why do those words always trip me up?) and secondly, it is has the reputation of being incredibly sour. It is sour, but a little sweetener and this becomes one of the most beautiful and delicious fruits (or vegetables, depending on how you classify it) around.

When I have people over, I like to make one special drink and serve it when people arrive. I do have a stocked bar, but I like to start the party off with a signature drink that sets the tone for what is to come. This beautiful, pink, fizzy, cocktail would be perfect for Mother’s Day (obviously), a baby or bridal shower, Easter, or any spring event. If you want to make this non-alcoholic, more like a rhubarb lemonade, skip the gin, and replace the Prosecco with sparkling water.

Step 3: I strained mine because I did not want the pulp in my drink. But you could simply remove the vanilla bean and call it good.
