Rhubarb contains a bright tartness that practically begs to be celebrated in a shrub, so that’s what we plan to do!  Our house made shrub has been prepared with a kick of ginger and we’re adding it to some gin, lime and club soda for a tasty cocktail.  We’re pairing the drink with a yummy dish of Rhubarb Crisp.  Rolled oats, hints of cinnamon and brown sugar are the perfect complement to the fresh fruit.  Relax on our patio and enjoy the views of the waterfront and ferries.  Summer at its best!
