Strawberry Rhubarb Lemonade

Ahhh, the decadence... 

Super fun treat to serve at events & easy to stretch recipe by adding seltzer, ginger ale... OR – for those over 21 years old, consider adding alcohol (think “gin” or “vodka”). Very nice as a summer mimosa with bubbly champagne.

You can definitely make extra & freeze ahead of time... Put in ziploc bags once cool & lay on sheet pan until frozen (stores very nicely when only minimal freezer space is available)!
