Ingredients

  • 600g rhubarb, chopped into thin slices
  • 200g caster sugar
  • A few strips of orange zest
  • 1 litre vodka

You will also need

Method

  1. Put the rhubarb into your sterilised jar. Add the caster sugar, orange zest and vodka. Seal and store in a dark cupboard for 1-2 weeks, turning or gently shaking every now and then 
to dissolve the sugar and mix up the rhubarb.

or a new J-cloth, then transfer to the sterilised glass bottle and seal.
  3. Serve chilled in shot glasses, martini glasses or small champagne coupes, or in highball glasses with ice, topped
