I love experimenting with home-infused alcohol. My friends Tim and Aaron turned me on to this homemade rhubarb vodka recipe. Rhubarb is in season right now, and although I love it in pies and jams, I wanted to try it in beverage form. This recipe is very easy to make, and my big jar of rhubodka is sitting next to the jars of Japanese plum wine I made a month ago, waiting to be ready for consumption. Rhubodka 1 1.75-liter bottle of vodka - Tim says the bottom shelf cheap vodka is fine. 4-5 sticks of red rhubarb (not green) 1/3-1/2 cup sugar A large jar with lid Cut the rhubarb into 1/2" to 1" chunks. Add everything to the jar and mix well, either by shaking the jar (if it's drip-proof) or stirring with a long-handled spoon. Store in a cool, dark place. Shake or stir the jar daily. The vodka will be ready in a month. Strain out the rhubarb and give it a taste test. Rhubarb vodka can be added to: • Tonic water • Soda water • Lemonade • Lemonade & soda water • San Pellegrino Limonata soda Related: Seasonal Spotlight: Rhubarb Recipe: Rhubarb Basil Cocktail Homemade Pantry: Rhubarb Syrup How To Make Umeshu (Japanese Plum Liqueur) Recipe Report: Quince Ratafia Vin de Noix and Nocino (Image: Kathryn Hill Recipe: Aaron Miller with input from Tim Tate)
