Rhubarb isn’t just for pies and sweet condiments. This fragrant iced tea is perfect for both holiday parties and the summer season, when rhubarb is everywhere. In NYC, June-July is when rhubarb is available everywhere – from supermarkets to farmer’s markets. Make it for your refreshing summer garden party or when you can find it in winter, make this for your holiday party.

Seasonal rhubarb isn’t just for pies. Rhubarb bleeds a lot, similar to beets. Therefore, it lends a pretty colored hue to things it’s added to like this Rhubarb Lavender Iced Tea, which can serve as a holiday mocktail. Not everyone drinks alcoholic beverages plus I hope every car has a designated driver who can’t drink for the evening. Let’s not leave the designated driver with just water and soda to drink. This pretty mocktail is a great way to help them get into the holiday spirit, even if they aren’t partaking in the glug and spiked apple cider.
