If you've been following the last few posts you know that A) we love rhubarb and B) putting rhubarb shrubs in almost everything we drink is now a thing for us. A recent trip to Attaboy by Red also has us hooked on white negronis. Put all of those factors together and you've got the latest cocktail to come from the Red & Brown bar: the pink negroni. A wonderfully refreshing seasonal drink, this little number is versatile enough to pair with a nice seasonal salad or some grilled chicken, or sip on its own on your stoop, porch, backyard, park, wherever. Mix a few up for your Memorial Day weekend festivities and toast to the unofficial start to summer. --Brown
