Mother’s Day will soon be here. It is a great chance to treat your mum and buy her a gift to show how much you appreciate her. Why not venture into the kitchen and cook a special meal for her? Most mums spend a lot of time in the kitchen cooking. What could be nicer than giving your mum the evening off to relax and enjoy a meal made for her?

Spicy Rhubarb Vodka Chicken
If you really want to impress your mum with a flavourful main course why not try making spicy rhubarb vodka chicken. It is really quick and easy to make but tastes as if you have put lots of work into it. Children could help to make this as it is so easy. The key to the flavour is in the preparation. The marinade should be made well ahead of time and the chicken left in it to soak it in. It is best to leave the chicken to marinade overnight. If that is not possible soaking it a few hours will let the flavours develop. After the chicken has been marinaded you just need to cook is slowly in a frying pan. The marinade will reduce and form a sticky coating on the chicken which tastes amazing. It goes really well with a serving of sweet potato fries.
The secret to the marinade is the addition of vodka. In this marinade my vodka of choice was Chase Rhubarb Vodka from 31 Dover. Chase Rhubarb vodka has a stunning pink colour which comes from the slow cooked Herefodshire rhubarb infused into it. This gives is a lovely subtle sweetness which works really well in this chicken recipe. It is also nice in a cheeky cocktail as well. Mix with a little champagne and a vanilla pod to create a cocktail that tastes like rhubarb crumble.
The perfect Mother’s day meal should be accompanied by the perfect drink. 31 Dover, the online drinks delivery company, have a great range of drinks that will suit any mum. They do next day delivery as well so you can even get a last minute gift. Whether your mum likes champagne, gin or wine you will find something perfect for her.
