Reviews for Rhubarb Slush
"This is a great recipe. It is the prefect combo of sweet and tangy. I also tried this recipe using green apples to replace the rhubarb for my family who doesn't care for rhubarb, it is great BOTH ways! I will be doubling the recipe in the future, it disappears quickly! :)"
"I have made this punch since it first came out in the 1995 May /June edition of Taste of Home. I try to freeze a few batches of the cooked portion of the recipe to have on hand for a taste of spring at a winter party or shower. Always a great hit and a nice suprise when people discover it has rhubarb in it."
"Wonderful recipe! Only bad part was that it didn't make enough!"
"This sweet/tart drink is very good. Everyone seems to really like it."
"I make this every summer! It's been a hit with friends even those who are initially appalled by rhubarb in a drink."
