Rhubarb Orange Refresher

Welcome Summer! This drink is a perfect way to cool off during the hot summer months. It has been suggested to freeze this recipe into popsicles… haven’t tried it yet, but I think it would be delicious!

Rhubarb Orange Refresher


  • 3 cups fresh rhubarb, cut crosswise in 1/2-inch slices, about 3/4 lb.
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 cup strawberries, frozen (or fresh)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 4 mint sprigs, for garnish

1. In large, stainless steel or other non-reactive saucepan, combine rhubarb and water. Cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Set aside to steep for 10 minutes.
