When life gives you rhubarb . . . if you're Aglaia Stalb, you invent a tart, tasty punch to serve at your inn. "I happened to have this huge rhubarb plant and had no idea to do with it, so I started experimenting," says Stalb, who has operated the Northfield Inn, a restored Victorian mansion in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains, for almost 18 years. Guests enjoy this punch from wide porches with views of the Sugarbush Mountain Peaks and the village of Northfield.
