    Made this rhubarb mint gin and tonic. Kinda makes my spring! Shared the recipe with my partners in crime and we are in agreement that this will be on our drink menu all summer. I’m freezing rhubarb to ensure I continue making the syrup. Thank you! We had a virtual happy hour featuring these delightfully refreshing libations. As a bonus, I learned how to spank mint!
