Is there anything that screams ‘perfect summer treat’ quite like fresh baked strawberry rhubarb pie? Okay. Maybe hot pastries aren’t the first thing on your mind when the temperatures start rising and all you need is something iced to cool you down—but who says you can’t have both?
We’ve taken this sweet Southern classic and turned it into another classic (cocktail, that is): the mint julep. And let me tell you, when united, this strawberry rhubarb julep might just be the ultimate summer cocktail! And since no one should be standing over a hot stove making syrups this time of year, we’ve made things even easier for you by actually using pie filling in this recipe, because in case you haven’t heard, jams and jellies are no longer just for toast!
The sweet tartness of the strawberry rhubarb jam combined with spicy bourbon and fresh mint really balances this drink into a decadent yet refreshing sip. So break out those copper mugs and crush as much ice as possible, because your summer is about to take a fabulous turn into sweet Southern hospitality!
