Rhubarb Tequila Spritzer

Recently, Whit told you about our new CSA with Grant Family Farms and how we get loads of produce every week.  You wouldn’t think that much of the contents of said CSA would work well in a cocktail, but you madame or sir are mistaken.  Actually most of the contents could be incorporated in one way or another into a drink but one thing in particular stood out.  Now, I am going to give credit where credit is due and tell you that this idea came from Whit so I can’t take full responsibility, (you’re darn skippy it was my idea) but Whit thought it would be a great idea to infuse tequila with some of the rhubarb we received.  If you can’t tell, we are still on the infusion high after the Apple Infused Rye.

You may think that the only thing rhubarb is good for is pie, but I am here to tell you that it worked very nicely with the tequila.  After we did a quick 2 day infusion of the tequila we decided it was time to use our newly flavored Mexican magic juice to make a beverage.  I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but Denver this past weekend was super hot.  Like I’m starting to sweat just looking out the window hot.  So naturally we wanted to create something that was going to be really refreshing.  We started with the refreshing go-to’s (lemon, lime, and agave) but decided that we wanted to add some sparkle to our cocktail so we added some Prosecco to the mix.  The outcome was sweet, refreshing, and rhubarby.  So the next time you find yourself with some rhubarb in your CSA, I would definitely recommend you put away the pre-made pie crust and pull out the tequila instead.
