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.

I did not add the time it takes to infuse the liquor.
Helpful tips
  • 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.
