Summer delish!!!


With the weekend upon us, I thought we'd all appreciate a delish cold drink....... compliments of Genius Martha Stewart.

 These are non-alcoholic, refreshing beverages {I'd add some rum to mine... just sayin'}

Here we go!

8 stalks rhubarb, cut into 3-inch lengths, 8 cups water, 1/3 cup sugar, or to taste, Fresh mint sprigs, for garnish

Directions:

1.In a large saucepan, combine rhubarb and 8 cups water; bring to a boil, and simmer for 1 hour. Strain the liquid, add sugar to taste, stirring to dissolve, and allow to cool. Serve over ice with a sprig of mint.




Pink grapefruit "margarita"
