3 stalks rhubarb, chopped
1 lb strawberries, pureed (use a blender or food processor)
2 cups sugar
4 cups water
1 cup lemon juice
1. Pour the water, sugar and rhubarb into a large pot and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and add in strawberries.
2. Let it sit for about 45 minutes and then strain through a sieve or cheesecloth.
3. Refrigerate the syrup for 1 hour and then stir in lemon juice. If it's too sweet for your taste, add water and/or lemon juice until it reaches the desired taste. If you have powdered or premade lemonade, you can always add the strawberry/rhubarb simple syrup to that to give it flavor, too.
4. Serve over ice. I garnished with some mint, because who doesn't love a garnish? Oh, and if you're feeling a bit saucy, throw in a 1/2 oz of vodka!
