It’s easy to recognise the sweet yet satisfyingly sharp taste of rhubarb and with such a distinctive tang, its flavour is hard to beat. Setting itself apart from other fruit flavours, rhubarb works exceptionally well in puddings, with meat and of course with spirits such as vodka, which provide a great way of enjoying seasonal rhubarb. A comforting spring tonic, rhubarb vodka can be enjoyed in numerous ways which we will outline in our 10 drink recipe ideas! Whether you’re into cocktails, wine or spirits on the rocks, we’ve got a selection of recipes to please every taste.

2. Rhubarb Vodka Pie Cocktail
A refreshing spring cocktail, this drink comprises of rhubarb puree which you can make yourself with rhubarb sticks, sugar and water boiled over a low heat. Once you have made this optional puree, you can mix with rhubarb vodka and add sugar according to how sweet you would like the taste.
