Rhubarb vodka liqueur is incredibly easy to make and is great for making refreshing summer drinks by mixing with sparkling wine, soda water, lemonade, making rhubarb vodka cocktails or just neat over ice.
Homemade Rhubarb Vodka Liqueur
- 1 litre (~1 quart) of vodka
- 5 sticks of red rhubarb
- 120ml (0.5 cup) sugar
Wash and chop the rhubarb into 2.5cm (1″) pieces. Add the rhubarb to a large sterilized jar, add the sugar and the vodka. Mix to dissolve the sugar. Secure the lid and leave for 4 to 6 weeks. Strain and decant into sterilized bottles. Store the rhubarb liqueur in a cool, dark place and use within 3 months. You could use the discarded rhubarb as a delicious grown-up topping for ice-cream.
After the rhubarb has steeped in the vodka the red colour from the rhubarb will transfer to turn the vodka a blush pink and impart a unique rhubarb taste.
