RHUBARB GIN

By: Sarah Date: 03/15/17 Category: Recipes

This is a simple and also quite sophisticated way of capturing the fresh tang of rhubarb in a bottle. It's lovely to sip on its own, for a G+T with a difference, or as an addition to a cocktail for a bit of fun.

Makes 500ml

250g rhubarb (the pinker the better) chopped into 1.5cm pieces
400ml gin
120g granulated sugar

1. Put the fruit in the jar and completely cover with gin. Store in a cool, dark place for 1 week.

2. Strain the liquid through a muslin, preserving the liquid. Pour it, with the sugar, back into the bottle. A funnel might be useful. Shake the bottle every day until the sugar is dissolved.

3. Your gin is ready to enjoy, just add ice and tonic!

Store in a cool, dark place, and drink within the year.
