I think rhubarb is so exciting because its season is relatively short-lived and for those of us who really like it (there are quite a few folks who don’t), the bright, tart flavor is something we wait all year for. 

What I love about using rhubarb in cocktails is the versatility: you can make a rhubarb simple syrup of sorts (and many of the recipes below instruct you how) and use it in everything from your favorite gin and tonic to a Negroni, margarita or simply use a few teaspoons in a glass of fizzy water for a refreshing non-alcoholic afternoon drink. Here are a few ways to get started:
