Rhubarb Margaritas (17)Today’s post is a collision of two good things: Cinco de Mayo and the plethora of rhubarb growing in our garden. Yep, that’s right, in this Irish home we made Rhubarb Margaritas tonight and they were amazing. Forget that rhubarb is choc full of Vitamin C, high in fibre, and a good source of calcium…forget it altogether. The only thing you need to know about Rhubarb Margaritas is they are soooo good.

If you are of legal drinking age and you like margaritas…this recipe is one you need to try. I’d even go so far as to say that even if you don’t like rhubarb, you should try this.

The internet has oodles of strawberry rhubarb margarita recipes but truly I’d keep it simple and give the strawberries a miss. We’ll find another use for them.

So, that’s it Dear Readers. Today’s post is short and sweet. ¡Olé!
