Every Monday and Wednesday, we'll announce a new Wildcard winner: a recipe that may not have been entered in (or won) a contest, but a recipe that we've tested and loved.

Rhubarb Cordial

WHO: eatboutique lives in New England and is the woman behind eatboutique.com.

WHAT: The best way to savor the season -- and preserve it for later. 

HOW: Throw some chopped rhubarb and sugar in a jar, cover with vodka, and let it sit for a month. 

WHY WE LOVE IT: By taking just a few minutes to throw 3 ingredients in a jar, you can make rhubarb season stretch a little bit longer -- and a killer after-dinner drink while you're at it. We also see this mixed with sparkling water (or sparkling wine!) and sipped by the pool.
