750 ml grain alcohol/neutral spirit*
375 grams of sugar
750 ml water
4-5 cups chopped rhubarb
Peel of one orange (taking care to avoid the white pith)
Combine the chopped rhubarb, orange peel, and the alcohol in a large jar (or something airtight), let sit for at least two weeks (shaking occasionally). After its resting time, strain the alcohol using a coffee filter and discard the fruit. Make a simple syrup, boiling the water and adding the sugar until dissolved. Once the syrup cools, combine with the rhubarb-infused alcohol. Pour into bottles or jars and keep chilled.
Serve in shot glasses, add to seltzer over ice, or drizzle over strawberry shortcake. Enjoy!
*There are those who will want to use vodka. That's between them and their god. I vote with the Italians and use grain alcohol.
