Rustico Rhubarb Punch

Ingredients for syrup

4 cups fresh rhubarb chopped small (washed)
2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar

Added ingredients

295 ml can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 litre club soda or lemon-lime soft drink (sugar-free)
Fresh fruit of choice and fresh mint (optional)


  1. Cover chopped rhubarb with water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a medium simmer and cook for about 20 minutes, until softened. 
  2. Remove from heat. 
  3. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean pot. Discard the pulp.
  4. Add sugar and return to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Let simmer for about 5 minutes. 
  5. Remove from heat & let cool completely. Store in a mason jar for several weeks in the refrigerator or freeze. 
  6. When ready to serve, combine rhubarb syrup and pink lemonade concentrate in a large jug and mix.
  7. Pour into a punch bowl. Add club soda or soft drink to taste.
  8. Garnish as desired. 

A traditional Prince Edward Island punch may also include a spirit, such as rum, to taste.
