  1. In large saucepan stir together the water, chopped rhubarb, sugar and lemon rind.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to med low, simmer til sugar dissolved and rhubarb breaks up about 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice.
  4. Strain thru fine sieve pressing out liquid.
  5. Let cool.
  6. To serve add 3 parts water to 1 part syrup.
  7. Serve over ice.
  8. Syrup keeps 3 weeks refrigerated.

Easy to make and different...which was what I was looking for. My children LOVE it. I am not quite sure what to think of it. I think it's lacking something (although I'm not sure what that "something" is) or I just can't seem to get over the fact that I'm drinking rhubarb . I gave it 4 stars because it's easy and it won my children over.
