Gin has become a national favourite, and it feels like it has grown very quickly. There are gin bars popping up everywhere, and all are offering some very tasty and unique flavours.
Ive always been one for testing out and trying new flavours in drinks, and one I continue to make every year is Sloe Gin, with my oldest bottle being from 2014, this is my vintage, im want to see if I cane leave it until its about 12 years old.
Anyway I have been trying to test out different gins, I have an allotment where I grow Rhubarb so the obvious thing was try doing something with it, so last year I made a Rhubarb and Ornage and my misss drank this with the week. So it was obviously tasty.
But this year I wanted to try something with rhubard and something else – meet Rhubard and custard.
I just couldn’t think on how to get the custard flavouring into the drink, but then of course there are Rhubarb and Custard sweeties.
So the recipe, the main thing your here for, and it is easy and only takes about 3-4 days before you an drink it, not like the 6 months to a year for the Sloe Gin.
What you will need.
1litre kilner jar or a wide open neck bottle
2 small bags of Rhubarb and Custard sweets
2 sticks of rhubarb (optional)
All ingredients were bought from Aldi but this is not in anyway a sponsored post, its just where I shop.
Its really simple, just put everything into your kilner jar, shake it up and leave it, just remember to shake at least once per day as the sweets stick to the jar.
