When you're woken up too early (again), just make rhubarb vodka!
Find a container big enough, weigh out the ingredients, chop the rhubarb and bung it all in the container. Give it a good shake every few days or when you remember.
Leave for about 3 months then keep it all for yourself, it's lush (and I say that as a committed gin drinker! Click the link to read a brilliant mummy blog.).
350g granulated sugar
1 litre vodka
