Rhubarb Champagne

This is a beautiful, pink, fizzy and (I think) alcoholic drink. 

I haven't made it in a while as I can never seem to find any decent rhubarb in the shops around here. 

We tried growing rhubarb but weren't successful at all.  If anyone knows any fail safe ways of growing rhubarb please do let me know because I am willing to have another go. Even my attempts at growing it couldn't be much worse than the straggly offerings in the supermarkets here in Bunbury.

Ingredients:

1 kg (2 and 1/4 pounds) rhubarb
3 cups sugar
6 teaspoons white vinegar
4 litres (7 pints) water
2 lemons

 

Method:

Cut rhubarb into small pieces.  Squeeze lemon and cut rind into small strips.  Add lemon juice, rind and rest of ingredients to the rhubarb.  Leave 48 hours stirring occasionally.  Strain 3 times.  Bottle and seal (crown seals).  Leave 2 weeks to brew.

 

Notes:

Try to choose really pink/red rhubarb as the colour makes a difference to the resultant champagne.

If the weather is warm then the 2 weeks waiting time can be reduced.
