Raw rhubarb is a delightful seasonal sour flavor, great for hot days and meals outdoors. It’s also an excellent source of calcium, vitamin K, and prebiotics to feed the good bugs in your gut. This punch is a pleasantly floral alternative to a traditional lemonade, and it’s just as delicious for kids as it is for adults.
