June 1, 2016

Nothing says summer like rhubarb! We use this delightfully tangy treat in pies, bars, and our signature Rhubarbarita cocktail, featured in our upcoming cookbook Chowgirls Killer Party Food: Righteous Bites & Cocktails for Every Season (out Fall 2016 from Arsenal Pulp Press ). Scroll down to find the recipe for this delicious drink, perfect for any summer celebration!

We're pleased to announce that Ari Baker-Kern & Liz Mullen are officially our Co-Chefs! Together this dynamic duo has years of experience, determination, drive, and values that reflect Chowgirls' culture and mission. We’re so excited to have them leading our kitchen as we forge forward into the busy season!

Where to find Chowgirls out & about in June:

6/4 ARTCRANK - (Fulton Brewery)
6/6 Creative Sustainability: What’s It Mean for the Northeast Minneapolis Arts District and Northeast Minneapolis? - (Solar Arts by Chowgirls)
6/15 AIGA 2016 Design Show - (Solar Arts by Chowgirls)

Chow staffers had a blast participating in the Foodie 4 Mile! Boss Lady Heidi is on the Northeast Farmers Market Board and was there making sure all participants were well fueled for the event.

As it says on Munster Rose's website: "We design days around your details."
We've had the pleasure of working side by side with Munster Rose at many events, and are constantly impressed by the quality product and true professionalism they bring to the table! All you have to do is scroll their Instagram to catch a glimpse of their phenomenal artistry.

One of the most promising signs of warm weather is the large green leaves and pink stalks of the rhubarb plant. Usually tamed by a strawberry accompaniment, rhubarb’s tart and tangy flavor—and its gorgeous color—is highlighted in this fun cocktail.

1 lb (500 g) rhubarb stalks, chopped into 1-in (2.5-cm) pieces
2 cups (500 mL) sugar
2 limes
1/2 cup (125 mL) coarse sugar crystals
26-oz (750-mL) bottle silver tequila

In a medium pot on high heat, bring rhubarb and 4 cups (1 L) water to a rolling boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until rhubarb is completely cooked and dissolved into threads. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and pour liquid back into pot. Return to stove, add sugar, and bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves completely. Allow to cool.

Juice 1 lime into a shallow, wide bowl. Slice other lime into rounds.
Dip rim of margarita glass first in lime juice first and then in coarse sugar. Fill glass with ice. In a cocktail shaker, shake together equal amounts of rhubarb syrup and tequila, pour into glasses, and garnish with lime slice.

Makes 6–8 servings

Sending a big congratulations to all the students graduating this season!
