Rhubarb Infused Vodka
This rhubarb infused vodka is delicious, wtih a nice flavor of rhubarb without being too tart. But there is no added sugar because sugar should be added when you make a cocktail, not when you infuse alcohol.
Servings 2 cups
- 2.5 cups rhubarb (5 medium stalks - washed and cut into 1/2 - 1 inch pieces)
- 2 cups vodka (approximately, once the rhubarb is added to the jar, pour vodka up to the top of the jar)
Wash jar in hot soapy water and dry thoroughly
Add sliced rhubarb to the jar and fill with vodka
Cap and sit on the counter for 4 days. Shake once a day
Place sieve in a large bowl and gently pour contents of the jar in the sieve, draining the vodka into the bowl. Throw rhubarb away
Bottle or jar the infused vodka
Make a cocktail
I did not add the time it takes to infuse the liquor.
- Wash the jar with hot soapy water before using it. But there is no need to sterilize the jar.
- I also wash the rhubarb with unscented hand soap and a vegetable brush.
- Use enough rhubarb to measure anywhere up to 3 cups. My 5 stalks ended up being 2.5 cups.
- Cut the rhubarb in 1/2 - 1 inch slices. They don't have to be uniform in size so don't stress.
- Use the best vodka you can afford as I do think it makes a difference.
- Let the vodka infuse for a minimum of 4 days and 7 at the maximum.
- Unlike most infused alcohol, I do not add sugar. There is no need to as you will be making cocktails with this delicious infusion and that is when you add sugar.
