Sharing is caring!

With Summer around the corner, we all feel the need to be more social! I love getting together on a sunny Sunday afternoon with the girls. The Strawberry Rhubarb Sparkler is the perfect light cocktail to sip on in the sun with your friends. It hardly takes any prep and is light and refreshing and what girl pal doesn’t like a little bubbly?!

Speaking of girl pals, my girlfriend Michelle is the reason I came up with this cocktail. Michelle has the most amazing garden you’ve ever seen and she just gifted me an armload of beautiful freshly picked rhubarb.

What’s a girl to do but come up with some kind of delicious cocktail? I happened to have strawberries in the fridge, so voila—the Strawberry Rhubarb Sparkler was born!

Let’s dive into how to create this delightful Strawberry Rhubarb Sparkler.
