Tasty rhubarb-ginger-orange vodka drinkable gifts!

Tasty rhubarb-ginger-orange vodka drinkable gifts!

You know, a while ago, about 1 month ago, I invented a rhubarb-ginger-orange vodka idea. You can read all about it Here,... I had to infuse it all with the sugar for 1 month in a dark place & had to shake the bottle up & down a few times every day. This mix is not Gluten-Free because of the vodka, of course!Β Now, the time has come to bottle them,…ooh yeah: Just look at these tasty beauties! πŸ™‚ You will have to begin with this tasty home-made vodka, 1 month before you want to drink it or give it away for a nice drinkable food gift! πŸ˜‰Β 

Recipe: For 2 x 188 ml filled bottles

Ingredients:

You will need to have a large sterilized bottle, like mine above or a bigger one so that you can double my recipe & aΒ sterilizedΒ lid screw. You can do that by placing them, one cycle in the dishwasher or to boil them for 10 minutes & to use them instantly.Β 

250 gr cleaned rhubarb, cut into 1 to 2 cm pieces

115 gr white sugar

3 cm freshly peeled ginger, cut into smaller pieces

350 ml of a good vodka, I usedΒ Eristoff

zest of 1 unwaxed orange, Β ( no white bits please! )

Method:

1. Place every ingredient in a sterilized bottle & screw the sterilized lid, well back on. Label your Β bottle & shake your bottle up & down & place it in a dry dark cupboard for 1 month. Shake your bottle up & down a few times, each day.

2. After 1 month, your rhubarb-ginger-orange vodka will be darker in colour,…like this:

Ready to be strained!

Ready to be strained!

Shake your bottle one last time & then, take lovely 250 ml bottles, like I did or smaller ones , if you like. Drain well & see that your rhubarb & ginger don’t go into your clean bottles. I put a few small sugared orange zest pieces into each of the bottles. Just look at these beauties! Store in the fridge or in your liqueur cabinet. I like to drink it cold. It is so good,…so strong with a bit of a ginger rhubarb kick! πŸ˜‰ Enjoy, my lovely ones! xxx

TIPS:Β With the leftover vodka infused rhubarb, ginger & orange zest, you can make a simple tasty compoteΒ & serve it on top of vegan vanilla, coconut or nutmilk ice-cream or in a vegan yoghurt!!! ) No waste in my kitchen! πŸ™‚ xxxΒ
