    Strawberry Rhubarb Daiquiri

    Though we don't tend to be daiquiri drinkers, this recipe is more fruity than sweet.
    It's a 4 to 6 serving recipe.

    6 oz. light rum
    1/2 c. lime juice (juice of 3 limes)
    1-1/3 c. rhubarb syrup (see our rhubarb syrup recipe below)
    1 c. fresh strawberries, sliced
    3 tb. simple syrup
    3 c. ice
    Mix in blender and serve in a cocktail glass.  
    Garnish with a fresh strawberry.


    Rhubarb syrup recipe
    First you need to cook the rhubarb. Cut about 15 stalks of rhubarb
    into one-inch pieces and place in a large pot. Cover with cold
    water, just covering the rhubarb, and add two cups of sugar.
    Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes,
    until rhubarb is mushy. Strain the pulp and savethe syrup, which
    will be a lovely blush color. You may find other uses for it.

    LPG Comma-Kaze

    While our work is far from done it's time we tipped our hats (and glasses) to our editor
    and publisher Lawrence P. Gooley of Bloated Toe Publishing.  Throughout the editing
    process we began to think that Larry was charging us for every comma he had to add
    to our drafts. It wasn't long before we started calling him the "Comma-Kaze."  In his
    honor we have concocted and imbibed that drink.  We substituted Absolut Citron for
    plain vodka in homage to his Absoluteness.  We have also removed all commas from
    our text just to drive him to that drink he so deserves.

    Cheers to Lawrence P. Gooley!
