Strawberry-Rhubarb Infused Vodka

Red liquid in bottle

If you haven’t noticed it yet, you will soon. Right now is the height of its season and it’s all the rage at the farmer’s market. What am I referring to? The world’s most tart food: rhubarb. For the longest time, I avoided anything with rhubarb. I mean, who wants to eat something that completely sucks the moisture out of your face? Not me. That is until my husband introduced me to strawberry-rhubarb vodka. Then, it became clear, the tartness of rhubarb is nothing a little sweetness and alcohol can’t fix. So, since rhubarb is in season now and strawberries will be in season in a few weeks, here is a simple recipe to add to your repertoire of light, refreshing, summer beverages:

Ingredients

  • 1.75-liter of vodka
  • 5 sticks of ripe rhubarb
  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Supplies

  • Large container with lid
  • Cheese cloth
  • Airtight bottle

Directions

  • Cut the rhubarb into 1/2 inch chunks, quarter the strawberries, and place into container
  • Add sugar
  • Fill your container with your vodka of choice (since you are infusing it, a bottom shelf brand is perfectly acceptable)
  • Secure the lid and shake vigorously
  • Store in a cool, dry place, and shake once a day
  • Infuse for about a month
  • Strain the contents of your container through the cheese cloth, and into your airtight bottle
  • Store in the refrigerator

Serve your gourmet vodka with lemonade, tonic, or sparkling water. It’s the most refreshingly perfect vodka for you to enjoy all summer long.

Cheers,

Amy

*Oh, and as an added bonus, I highly recommend planting some mint in your garden potters right now…more on that later.
