This is from a collection of recipes from books I own, but which I haven't myself tried yet. However, you can have faith that at least the authors themselves have tried them, so they're not deadly or anything.
Wash and trim rhubarb. Slice rhubarb about 1/4" thick by hand or in the food-processor. Place in aging container. Add sugar and stir. Add vodka and stir again. Cover and let sit at room temperature for 2 to 4 weeks. The color will change to a rosy glow. Stir occasionally.
After initial aging, strain through metal colander placed over a large bowl. Press juice out of rhubarb with spoon. Discard rhubarb. Strain and filter until clear. Bottle as desired, cork and age at least 1 additional month before serving.
