HAPPY CANADA DAY!! I wanted to celebrate today with a very refreshing drink, Rhubarb Lemonade. 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.
Lemonade can be so refreshing as long as it’s 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!!!
