Boozy Strawberry-Rhubarb Lemonade

Summer’s over in basically two seconds and it feels like it never happened at all. Where were the hot, sweaty porch hangs, sunburnt road trips, and sticky trips to the pool with hooch hidden in a old Mountain Dew bottle*? This holiday weekend, we’re making the most of the dwindling daylight , fueled by our Boozy Strawberry-Rhubarb Lemonade.

Nothing says “Summer” quite like lemonade— except for Strawberries and Rhubarb. Putting the three together is as nostalgic as it is seasonal. Tangy and sweet, with a heady Strawberry perfume, this lemonade hits all of the right buttons without being too alcoholic for responsible day drinking. It tastes like your grandma’s top secret recipe for strawberry pie in a glass, but it’s not cloyingly sugary. It’s grown up. And damn good.

In all fairness, this lemonade is real good virgin, too, but we spiked ours with a bottle of Art in the Age Rhubarb Tea (generously gifted from their sweet social media team— like last year because we’re terrible at working on promotions [e.g. don’t contact us to do promotions]) and it gave the perfect, light hit of boozy heat, rounding out sugary berries and tart rhubarb and citrus. If you do skip the booze, you will probably want to add an extra ¼-½ cup of sweetener.

Boozy Strawberry-Rhubarb Lemonade

  • 1 pint Strawberries, washed and hulled
  • 8 oz Rhubarb, fresh (washed and hulled) or frozen
  • 1 cup fresh Lemon Juice (about 4-6 Lemons)
  • ⅛ tsp Sea Salt
  • 3-4 cups Water
  • ¾ cup Honey
  • 6 oz Art in the Age Rhubarb Tea (gin or vodka would probz be pretty nice, too)

Makes 6-8 glasses

Combine your Strawberries, Rhubarb, Lemon Juice, and Salt into your blender and puree until very smooth. The Salt does more than season the drink— it helps to break down the cellular structure in the berries for an easier-to-strain puree. Strain through cheesecloth or a fine mesh strainer to remove the hairy Rhubarb strings and Strawberry seeds. Dilute with Water, sweeten with Honey, and add your hooch.

Serve cold, with too many ice cubes.

*not that we do that. also don’t break laws.
