The Strawberry Rhubarb Fizz

Spring has officially arrived, and we are celebrating with a light cocktail that's perfect for our favorite springtime activity — outdoor drinking. As the weather begins to warm up, the Farmers Market gets a bit more colorful, and we are more than happy to take advantage of it. We picked up bright red rhubarb and combined it with some local strawberry-rhubarb preserves we had stashed away to add a depth of peak-season fruit flavor to this week's cocktail: The Strawberry Rhubarb Fizz.

This recipe is adapted from a cocktail in our book, Shake: A New Perspective on Cocktails. We’re big fans of this classic combination of sweet strawberries and tart rhubarb, a pairing that makes us nostalgic for our Southern upbringing. Fresh rhubarb gets muddled in the bottle of the Mason Shaker. Strawberry-rhubarb preserves, lemon and Ketel One Vodka join the mix. After a good shake, the mixture is strained through a fine strainer into an ice-filled collins glass and topped with club soda. Garnish with a rhubarb stalk and enjoy!
