The Rhube is an absolutely amazing cocktail that features XUXU Strawberry Liqueur and a splash of fresh rhubarb soda. This drink was created by Allen Katz, Director of Mixology and Education of Southern Wine & Spirits and host of Martha Stewart Living Radio's show, "Cocktail Hour." The subtle flavor of fresh rhubarb mixed with strawberries makes The Rhube perfect for any spring or summer party.

If you want to skip the homemade rhubarb soda, Katz suggests that the bottled rhubarb or fruit sodas (ie. Izzie's) available will make a sufficient substitute.
