    I really enjoyed this, although some others didn't agree. I wonder if it could be frozen after it's made since it's so time intensive for just one batch? - Sharon Miller, Grinnell, IA

    I love rhubarb and don't mind the tartness in a drink over the summertime. Probably add some vodka to it to give it a little kick.
