This refreshing Rhubarb Punch is cheering and unexpected, and gets such a pretty pink hue from the rhubarb. The base mix is sweet, but as the melting ice dilutes it, it achieves perfect balance.
1 pound rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 stick cinnamon
1-1/4 cups sugar
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, combine rhubarb, cinnamon stick, and 4 cups water. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes. Strain juices and discard rhubarb. Immediately add sugar and stir to dissolve. Cool, then chill overnight in a large pitcher.
Pour juice into a punch bowl and add pineapple juice and lemon juice. Just before serving, add ice.
