Rhubarb Lemonade

Here is one of my favorite drink recipe for springtime: the Rhubarb Lemonade!

Jump to recipe

It’s actually the first drink recipe I put on the blog after almost a year of existence. Yeah, I’m not really into drinks… When I don’t forget to drink, it’s mostly tea or water. And for parties, I make my own kombucha 🤓⁣

I had extra rhubarbs and I’m not really into pies either so I decided to make a drink! It is a very refreshing and not too sweet drink, I really like it!

Already a few people made this recipe so here are my remarks: you can either peel or not peel the rhubarb. The final color of the drink depends on it. If you have a very reddish rhubarb and you don’t peel it, you’ll have a color similar to mine. If you peel the rhubarb, the color of the drink will be more like a pale pink. Finally, if you don’t have any red on your rhubarb, you might end up with neither pink nor reddish color but maybe more brownish, no big deal it’s still delicious! In that case, you can add a few raspberries to the rhubarb to add some color to your lemonade. 😀
