Mulberry Rhubarb Liqueur
I made Mulberry Rhubarb Liqueur last summer when rhubarb and mulberries were in season. I buy my rhubarb at my favorite farm, Nicolet Farms, located on Hwy 64 in Suring WI. If you are privileged like I am and have a son and daughter-in-law that have not one but three Mulberry trees on their property, then your in luck, if not then you’ll have to check around in your area for Mulberries or you can substitute blueberries or blackberries.
Nicolet Farms is a family-owned muck farm located on the border of the Nicolet National Forest. Our motto is “Locally grown, Locally sold.” Our on-farm store provides customers with a seasonal cornucopia of choices ranging from carrots, beets, potatoes, onions, beans, apples, tomatoes, pickles, broccoli, kohlrabi, honey, pumpkins, squash, garlic, rhubarb, rutabagas, corn-on-the-cob, and horseradish. We also sell beef halves and hamburger. Call for availability. Open year round.
Made in the summertime so it would be ready in time for the Holidays!
