Athlete Drinks: Rhubarb Shrub Cocktail

Last weekend we harvested about 10 pounds of rhubarb from our yard in New Paltz. The first year we had our plants, we got nothing, the second year we took a little, and this year, the third, we hit the money. So much rhubarb. I attempted a driveway rhubarb tag sale, but didn't get any takers. I made a paleo rhubarb apple crisp (recipe coming!), but that didn't put a dent in the pile of red stuff. That's when I turned to Twitter for ideas on what to do with it all.

Sarah from Race2Rebuild was the first to respond. Her suggestion: make cocktails. She sent a few recipe ideas and later that day, after a four hour bike ride, I set out to become a mixologist. First I made a rhubarb shrub which is like a simple syrup but made with vinegar instead of water. The process definitely made me appreciate the $15 craft cocktail. It's not difficult, but it does take a lot of ingredients - not that I minded in this case! --Bec
