Toss the pie tin, tipplers,  rhubarb ain't just for dessert anymore!!!

Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1½ cups water
~ Champagne or Sparkling water

Steps

1.Place rhubarb, sugar, and 1½ cups of water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then turn down to a simmer. Cook for about 15 minutes, until the syrup is bright pink.

2.Turn off the heat and allow to cool. Strain syrup into a large jar.

Rhubarb Punch:

4 cups rhubarb
2 cups water

Cook rhubarb in water until soft. Drain through a cheesecloth and save juice. Dissolve sugar and Jell-O in rhubarb juice. Add pineapple juice, lemon juice and chill or freeze. Add soda just before serving. You can make several recipes and freeze (don't add soda, add after thawing)."You can also "spike" this one with Vodka or Tequila Dahling"...
