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!
