Super refreshing punch! No one will ever guess that it is made with rhubarb.
I liked this but it took a lot longer to freeze than I thought it would. Could not serve the day I wanted to. I used diet ginger ale to cut the sweetness a little bit. Very refreshing!
This is absolutely wonderful...my kids really enjoy this. I usually don't buy ginger ale, so we either just scoop into a dish and eat like italian ice or I'll mix it with lemonade for a slushier treat. Either way....it's just so refreshing!
I have a slight var of this I use 8 cups of rhubarb cut into 1 inch pieces and 2 cups of water and stew it then add a scant cup of white suger and process it using all the rhubarb I then add 1 can of pink lemonade concentrate and 4 cans of watermakes 4 liters (I freeze a little for use instead of ice ) When ready to use i add equal amts of rhubarb concentrate to equal amts of ginger ale c I garnish punch bowl with orange slices and blueberries etc. I nmake it for church functions,weddiing s,and parties etc

Great punch!! Even good with a little vodka in it, but wonderful without too! Will be drinking this all summer long!!!
Made it last summer and now it's getting warmer again, my two daughters remember the drink and now i'm going to the store after finding this recipe again, YUM
This is incredible! (It would even be great as an adult beverage- add vodka or rum!) I love rhubarb, though couldn't imagine drinking it, but you can't distinguish the rhubarb taste with the strawberry and lemon added.
Since this recipe is blocked for many of us, would you print it out? It sounds too good to miss. Thanks. Diana
