Rhubarb Gin


400g rhubarb – as pink as you can get as this give the gin a better colour

250g sugar

750ml gin



Cut the rhubarb into 2 cm pieces and add to a 1 litre wide necked bottle/jar. Add the sugar, shake and leave overnight – the sugar will draw the juices out of the rhubarb. Add the gin and shake well. Place in a cool dark place for 4 weeks. Strain through muslin and bottle/serve.


Note – the colour fades the longer you keep it – so best drink quickly!

  1. Mmm sounds lovely will make this with rhubarb in my garden will send you pics of the finished product. Shaun has recently got into his gin and tonics don’t think the pink tinge will put him off. If it does I will have to sample it all 😆
