Rhubarb gin
« on: April 21, 2018, 17:09 »
Having had one the other week it was wonderful and thouht how hard can this be so today emptied my pasta jar chopped my rhubarb popped in the jar with the sugar and gin to go in tomorrow 4 weeks later rhubarb gin fingers crossed all .
my question is i was given a cheap bottle of dark rum and it is awful it needs mellowing or a flaavour just sonthing so it wont strip the lining off my stomache , ideas on what i can use , i was given a bottle of spiced rum st Christmas so i have that flavour , hubby sugested draining it through a marrow is that good from my experience they dont have much flavour either .
waiting with baited breath .

Rhubarb and ginger vodka is pretty good too  :nowink:

With rum you need something with a depth of flavour as it has a strong taste itself. I've made orange rum before and that was good

I've made blackcurrant rum using blackcurrants from the freezer.   Very nice in the winter when you have a cold.  Doesn't cure the cold but you feel so much better while waiting for it to go away ::)

we started making rhubarb cordial last year when we had a glut of rhubarb a friend ours gave us the recipe     we first of  boil  the rhubarb in a saucepan with sugar strain it down when its cold bottle and store in the fridge then add the gin when surving

makes a very refreshing drink for sitting in the garden after a spell on the allotment  :D

We do the same with rhubarb and make a cordial with added ginger. My little 'un likes it with sparkling water and I like it with something a little stronger ;)
