Pink Rhubarb Punch

Rhubarb is the featured ingredient in this blush-colored punch. A friend passed the recipe on to me, and we enjoy it so much that I thought others might, too. —Rebecca Mininger, Jeromesville, Ohio

    I found this way too sweet and even cut the sugar by 1/2 cup.

    I made this today for our family and they all loved it-even those that don't usually like rhubarb! Very refreshing on a hot day.
