Sure, you've had agua fresca drinks, but we'd wager you've never made one with rhubarb before. Give it a try and see what you've been missing.




  • In a 4-quart pot combine rhubarb, sugar, and 6 cups water. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve the sugar; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes or until rhubarb has broken down. Let cool 1 hour. Chill, covered, 2 to 4 hours.

    Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher; discard solids. Stir in lemon juice. Serve or chill, covered, until ready to serve. Serve over ice. Makes 6 servings.
