Homemade rhubarb vodka
We have lots of rhubarb in our garden at the moment, so I decided to try a recipe that I found in the Daily Telegraph a few weeks ago: rhubarb vodka.
I bought a bottle of Aldi's finest vintage...picked my rhubarb and set to work.
I chopped the rhubarb and put it in a pan with orange juice and some sugar, then simmered until the fruit was soft. I cooled it, then put it in a jar, and topped up with the vodka.
I will have to transfer to an airtight jar. It needs to be left for at least a week, shaking occasionally, before being strained and decanted into a bottle.
Best served with lots of ice. I have no idea what it will taste like, I'll let you know. And if it is good, there's plenty more in the garden (not vodka, sadly, just the rhubarb!).
