Spring has sprung and we are ready to use some of the season’s first harvests to craft this week’s Clever Cocktail. Rhubarb and Strawberries go together wonderfully in cocktails and today we have created a take on the “Spritz” using these two spring favorites. It is a refreshing, slightly bitter, slightly sweet cocktail perfect for the season.

- 1 ½ ounces of Aperol
