Low-Calorie Gin Lemonade Cocktail

A Low-Calorie Rhubarb Cocktail For Your Next Summer Soiree

Want a cocktail that doesn't undo your diet this Summer? Here's a pretty one from our friends at Self.

Pink lemonade. Why does it taste better than regular lemonade? It does, right? That's something to ponder over this adult twist on the summertime classic. Typically pink lemonade's pinkness comes from crushed berries or food coloring, but the folks from Chicago's 2 Sparrows use rhubarb, a surprisingly versatile vegetable. It's a two-step cocktail as you make a rhubarb puree and then construct the drink. Behold.

Notes

For the rhubarb puree: in a small saucepan over low heat, cook 1 cup roughly chopped rhubarb with 1 tablespoon sugar, adding more to taste, until rhubarb has released its juices and is soft. Cool slightly, then transfer to a blender, and puree. Refrigerate in an airtight glass container.
