"This is a refreshing spring time beverage. It is also a great way to use up all that fresh rhubarb. Alcohol is optional."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

If you want to keep more rhubarb flavour, save the cooking water from step 1 to use as the ingredient water in step 2. Even with half the sugar it's plenty sweet, next time I will use Soda Water instead of lemon-lime pop. A great recipe- and fun to experiment with!
It's nice to find a beverage recipe to use all of my rhubarb in. This one didn't quite have enough rhubarb flavor in it for me, so I added another 1 c of rhubarb. i also reduced the sugar to 2/3 c instead of 1 c. That helped. Next time, I don't think I'll put quite as much orange juice. That seemed to overpower it a bit.
My husband swears this is the BEST slush ever! I go about making it a little differently. I put my chopped rhubarb in the saucepan and usually I toss in 1/2-1 c raspberries for color. Once tender, rather than draining and blending I just use my immersion blender. Then add the remaining ingredients (but only HALF the SUGAR) and I always use Brandy instead of Gin. Its so quick and easy - and delicious.
UPDATE: I made this tonight with Blackberry Brandy and Grape juice concentrate instead of Orange (again 1/2 the sugar). Delicious! I think this might be my favorite version now.
Instead on gin I used Maui Tropical Schnapps & that added a nice extra flavor to it. Very good way to use up your Rhubarb!
Sooo delicious and refreshing! I'm always going to have a batch of the slush on hand for company or a refreshing treat for myself. Thanks so much.
My company found this drink (I made it virgin) very refreshing. I plan on keeping a batch in the freezer for unexpected guests. Great way to use your rhubarb!
A good way to use a lot of Rhubarb. I used rum instead of gin and it tasted great. I also recommend using a flavored sparkling H2O instead of pop as this recipe already has a lot of sugar. Four Stars.
Wasn't really that impressed with this recipe...lot of work and only an okay taste
