The sweet and refreshing rhubarbra striesand cocktail is one of my favorite Spenard Roadhouse drinks. It might feel like summer is about to come to a close, but prolong the midnight sun with this thirst quencher.

The signature cocktail features house made rhubarb infused vodka you can make rhubarb infused very easily and in a short amount of time.
