Rhubarb lemonade

Having my own garden (for about 3 years now) but no rhubarb plant, that’s what I call a garden disaster! So this year to plant my very own rhubarb plant is going to be on the top of my to-do list. Until then rhubarb is on my weekly shopping list and I keep begging friends and family niecly, who already are lucky to have rhubarb in their garden to get some…

Why? One reason is this lovely sweet lemonade. Perfect to serve and enjoy ice-cold now that spring and the warm weather finally has arrived.
