Hello & Happy Thursday!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

While I typically consume only red wine, when summer weather hits and a variety of fruits are in season, I’m all about a fresh custom cocktail!

 

 

Whether its a beverage or a baked good, I love all things rhubarb! I find that the flavor profile is unique and it blends seamlessly with a variety of fruits!

 

 


 

What I love about this particular cocktail is that it packs lots of flavor, a bold color, presentation is perfection, and all in all its the perf go to summer cocktail whether vegan or not!

 


 

 

 

If you crave a modern cocktail that doesn’t disappoint, you have to try my Strawberry Rhubarb Mojito recipe!
