    Just thinking...I don't know if I've got enough rhubarb in my (as yet untested) vodka. Is there any reason why I couldn't remove the first lot of rhubarb, then add the same amount again and rebottle? Would that enhance the flavour? Have any of you tried this?

    No reason why not. I did it with cherries - after weeks, the vodka had taken the colour but not much flavour. I drained them off and put them in the freezer for later, then added a new batch of cherries to the same vodka. Later added the alcoholic cherries to home made chocolate truffles. Unbelievably yummy.

    Having just had a wee test (medicinal, to numb the pain of a 12 hour shift in the new garden, honest) it definitely tastes of rhubarb, and the brown sugar is definitely noticeable too.

    However, I'm not entirely sure what to make of it, so I'll probably have to have another one in a bit.
