Yesterday’s Mother’s Day brunch shoot was one for the books, but mostly because I had my mother beside me.  I knew she’d be tickled with the new clothes from J.McLaughlin, and planning a tasty spread for her was a piece of cake with all of her favorites.  I knew, too, that there’s probably nothing she loves more this time of year than sweet fresh strawberries and tart rhubarb, so what better way to use them than in a refreshing rhubarb strawberry gin fizz cocktail?!

I’ve played around with gin fizz variations before (Bruleed Grapefruit Gin Fizz is one of our most popular cocktail recipes of all time and our most recent Lemongrass Gin Fizz is amazing), and I tend to always love them because the fizz offers that bubbly-let’s-celebrate feeling to any gathering.  Since of course we’re celebrating Mama K here, I was eager to mix these up with strawberries, but I knew I didn’t want the recipe to become too one note.  Enter the perfect, seasonal counterpart to a strawberry, rhubarb.  Being known for its biter and tart taste rhubarb compliments those sweet strawberries to a tee.  The result, a girly, tangy, sweet pink drink you’ll never want to put down.  Tell me friends, how will you be toasting Mom? Truly, MKR
