Rhubarb Lemonade

HAPPY CANADA DAY!! I wanted to celebrate today with a very refreshing drink. Something you can whip up easily and enjoy right away. I love making iced tea this way, pouring it right over ice and serving it immediately. I almost always have a jug in the fridge going. So I thought I would try this same method with lemonade.

We planted a rhubarb plant a few years ago and finally this year we have enough to do something with it. I let it get nice and deep red before we picked it. I had this refreshing drink in mind to show you for Canada Day. I like a lemonade that is refreshing and not too sweet, with the rhubarb you do have to add sugar but not too much.

I hope you enjoy your Canada Day with this lovely lemonade. ENJOY!!!
