Rhubarb Lilac Spritzer

rhubarb lilac spritzer_4My sweet friend, Erin, is constantly churning out the simplest, most delectable, recipes that always leave my jaw agape, and my mouth watering. So when she posted about her recipe for rhubarb lilac syrup, I instantly bookmarked it for future reference… As luck would have it, just a few days later, I found myself at my cottage with both rhubarb and lilacs growing in abundance in my grandma’s garden. So I naturally whipped some up, and couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. Whether you stir it into a cocktail, mix it with sparkling water, or pour it atop your vanilla ice cream, there’s one thing for certain: you need this sweet and sticky magic in your life.
