Make the most of seasonal rhubarb by preserving its flavour in Debbie Major’s easy rhubarb vodka recipe.

Ingredients

  • 600g rhubarb
  • 200g caster sugar
  • A few strips of orange zest
  • 1 litre vodka

You’ll also need

  • A sterilised, airtight jar (a clip-sided Kilner-type jar would be ideal)

Method

  1. Chop the rhubarb into thin slices and put in the jar. Add the sugar, the orange zest and vodka. Seal and store in a dark cupboard for 6-8 weeks (the longer the better), turning or gently shaking every now and then to dissolve the sugar and redistribute the rhubarb. Strain the vodka through a square of muslin, then transfer to a screw-top glass bottle. Serve chilled in shot glasses.
