Strawberry Rhubarb Cosmopolitan

Rhubarb is underrated and some even find it intimidating, but I think its one of the most wonderful gifts of spring! Paired with fresh strawberries and youve got a sweet and tangy flavor combo that cant be beat. Usually I bake with rhubarb (you might remember this delicious cake), but today Im shaking things up with a Strawberry Rhubarb Cosmopolitan!

Traditional cosmos contain cranberry and lime juice, but for this version I’ve created a delicious strawberry rhubarb syrup to flavor the drink. The syrup is easy to make and really adds a unique blend of sweet and tang that’s irresistible! (An added bonus is that your kitchen will smell absolutely amazing while this is simmering away…mmmm!)

Cosmos are a vodka based drink and for this Strawberry Rhubarb Cosmo, I found a tasty strawberry vodka to really enhance the flavor. I think it gives the drink just the right amount of berry flavor without being too sweet.

The days here in Annapolis are (slowly) getting warmer and warmer, and I can’t wait to sit on my front porch and sip on one of these! It’s refreshing and crisp and definitely like taking a sip of pure springtime.

I originally shared this Strawberry Rhubarb Cosmopolitan as my monthly contribution over at Just Us Four Blog, and you can find the full recipe there.
