Strawberry-Rhubarb Lemonade
Ingredients
4
cups cold water
2 1/2
cups chopped fresh rhubarb (about 12 ounces)
1 1/4
cups sugar
2
cups quartered fresh strawberries
1
cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
cup sparkling water or club soda, chilled (optional)
 
Ice cubes
Directions
  1. In a large saucepan, combine the 4 cups water, rhubarb, sugar, and lemon peel. Bring to boiling, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup of the strawberries. Cool for 20 minutes.
  2. Pour mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large pitcher. Press fruit pulp with the back of a spoon to extract as much juice as possible; discard pulp. Stir lemon juice and vanilla into juice mixture. Cool for 30 minutes. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours.
  3. To serve, add the remaining 1 cup strawberries and, if desired, sparkling water. Serve in glasses over ice.
