A bunch of inspirational Swedish bloggers have started this vegetarian food challenge. Each month a host blog picks a produce in season for anyone to participate and create new fab-tastic veggie recipes!

This month Rhubarb is the star of the show, which I was really excited to read as it gave me a push to finally try out this recipe that I have been meaning to make since just about 4ever... Namely, Rhubarb Mojitos!

I was pondering whether I should add a bit of ginger to the rhubarb puree, for a nice sting you know, but decided to incorporate it via Ginger Beer instead and opt out the common club soda.

 I am not really a big drinker but when I do, I am almost certain to go for rum. However, you can easily enjoy this as a refreshing mocktail by simply skipping the alcohol.
