Rhubarb Lemonade is a 3 ingredient drink made of sugar, water, and freshly squeezed lemons. Add some freshly chopped rhubarb to it to give a sweet-tangy taste!
If you have an abundance of rhubarb in your garden make this Summer Rhubarb lemonade. I just recently updated this post and I must say, that I do miss my rhubarb plant that I had growing at my old house. Whenever all this snow melts I might be planting a new rhubarb plant. The only thing missing is a lemon tree but North Dakota is not a good place to grow those.
