As the year shifts gear from spring into summer, the rhubarb really is in her prime. Slender long legs in an elegant shade of green, a hat, bigger and floppier than anyone else’s, wearing those daring, bright pink shoes; she’d be well at home at any summer party.
No summer party would be complete without an elegant, delicious and fun cocktail to delicately sip upon. Step in the subtlety pink, and oh so botanical, rhubarb infused vodka.
- Two large sticks of rhubarb, chopped
Sterilise a large litre and a half jar. Roughly chop the rhubarb. Pour in the vodka, add the sugar. Shake. Add the rhubarb. Leave for three weeks. Try and remember to shake it gently once a week. Strain out the rhubarb and it’s ready to use.
