I have a super yummy recipe for you tonight. Yes, I am enjoying a glassful as we speak. It's been a pretty stressful evening...hopefully that all comes to an end in about a week! Yeah,yeah, I drank part of this before I thought to take the photo :)
8 cups rhubarb
3 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 quarts water
1 small package strawberry jello
2 cups rum (only, I used vodka in mine, I guess...didn't even realize this mistake until just now while I am re-typing it - the vodka is super yummy, too, though!)
In a large pot, combine rhubarb, sugar, lemon juice, and water. Cook until rhubarb is soft. Strain mixture to remove pulp. Add jello to the mixture and allow it to cool. Add alcohol. Place in a large plastic container and put in freezer. To serve, fill a glass 1/2 to 3/4 full of the slush mixture and add 7-up.
**Side note here, don't throw away the pulpy part you strain - it makes a yummy sauce to top ice cream with - or just to eat!
