Strawberry Rhubarb Cooler

I used to be quite the cocktail maker before I decided that alcohol wasn't for me.  Making the cocktails was about mixing different flavors together and coming up with something that was balanced and delicious. I still believe that about drinks, even though the ones I make now are mocktails.  They are however every bit as delicious as the ones with alcohol I used to make.  This Strawberry Rhubarb Cooler I made myself last week on  hot day after working in a hot kitchen was so delicious and refreshing I decided to share it with you all.

Strawberries and rhubarb are already a favorite sweet tart combination of mine, and here I combined them with tart lemon juice and cider vinegar which are also good for cleansing the body.  I added in a bit of mint for a cooling effect as well and it was delicious with the fruit.  The drink was perfectly balanced and sooo good!  If you have an over abundance of rhubarb like I have had lately, you must try this drink!
