Rhubarb Spritzers

Fresh rhubarb works best for this recipe, but frozen will do in a pinch. Its characteristically tart taste combines well with lime juice and sugar for a refreshing springtime beverage. You can add sparkling wine instead of water for adults.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup spritzer and 1 lime slice)
