    This is a great way to use rhubarb that is a bit more mature. The spritzer is delicious. A great summer drink. This will be something we make often.

    Another great rhubarb recipe that is in my Favorites Cookbook My rhubarb was late this year so last week was one great week for us. Love this spritzer - I was really surprised just how good it was with pineapple!

    Mmmm! What a refreshing different drink! I halved the recipe since there's only 3 of us. I used diet soda and splenda. I actually used less than half of the lesser amount of sugar recommended which I found plenty sweet. I found the rhubarb taste mild yet very detectable, while the pineapple flavour was also present but even milder. A great mix of flavours for a very enjoyable drink. Reviewed during ZWT 4.

    Made & reviewed for ZWT 4 - Kumquat's Kookin' Kaboodles! This makes a really delicious, simple & refreshing drink. I also added rhubarb ice cubes to serve...yum! The whole family really enjoyed this. Thanks Lainey for a great recipe :)
