What is the opposite of strawberry lemonade? Rhubarb limeade of course! I like to serve mine with a bit of vodka... —gabsimonelouise

What You'll Need
  • 3 medium stalks rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup lime juice, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons vodka, or to taste
  1. First, make the rhubarb syrup. Chop the rhubarb stalks into 1/2 inch pieces. Put in a medium-size saucepan along with the sugar and water. Heat to boiling, then simmer until rhubarb is soft and falling apart.
  2. Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the rhubarb into a large jar. Press on the solid rhubarb to extract all the liquid. You can save the rhubarb solids...I eat them plain!
  3. Mix in the lime juice. Add 8-12 ice cubes to cool the mixture. Stir until the cubes are melted, then add the vodka. Slice off a thin strip of rhubarb if you have extra stalks, and twist it to add a fun flourish to each person's drink glass!
