Rhubarb Vodka Recipe

It’s nearly March so rhubarb will be in season as of next week and we found this amazing Rhubarb Vodka recipe from Nutmegs Seven which we just had to share with you.

See the full blog post here (it’s definitely worth a read) or check out the easy and fabulous recipe below.

Ingredients (makes 750ml)

  • 500g rhubarb
  • 250g granulated sugar
  • 750ml vodka

 

Method

1. Cut the rhubarb into 2cm pieces. In batches, crush it roughly in a pestle and mortar, and place in a large, clean airtight jar (I used a 2-litre Kilner jar). Add the sugar and shake to combine. Pour over the vodka, clip on the lid, then shake well.

2. Leave in a cool, dark place, shaking the jar daily, for at least 3 weeks. After 3 weeks you can shake the jar less frequently, about once a week.

3. When ready to drink (it will be at its best after at least 3 months), strain the vodka through a fine sieve or muslin, then bottle

 

And there you have it, you’ll have a delicious, rhubarb infused vodka ready for drinking in the spring and summer… Lovely!

Pear And Lemon Infused Sugar

This infused sugar is a great way to add a bit of extra flavour to anything! Add to tea, bake cakes with it and sprinkle on top of toast or anything else you like. This sweet treat is so simple to make and when we say simple, we really do mean simple.

All you need is sugar, lemon peel and pear peel.

Fill your Kilner jar ¾ full with sugar and then simply add the lemon peel and pear peel on top of the sugar, close the jar and let the flavours infuse.

We used fresh pear and lemon peel for maximum flavour! If you want to experiment, try using different types of sugar and other fruits and spices!

Simple and delicious, that’s how to make our Pear and Lemon Infused Sugar!

Blackberry Vodka and Gin

We’ve got a great alcohol infusion idea for you today; blackberry vodka and blackberry gin. Sound delicious? Then read on…

We used foraged blackberries, which were picked nearly four months ago to make this richly coloured liquor. Following the simple instructions from the Kilner Sloe Gin Set, we then made one litre of blackberry gin and one litre of blackberry vodka.

It really is easy, you just need to follow three simple steps:

  1. Add sugar
  2. Keep in a dark cupboard (for around 4 months)
  3. Turn once a week

We then used a Kilner label gift set and some 0.25l Kilner bottles to store our blackberry goodness so we could use them as home made and personal gifts for our friends and family this Christmas.
