the greatest recipe of all time

In my line of work I come across some pretty crazy recipes. This one wins. Every facet is genius. It is a work of art. It is from Kitchen of Light, which is a cookbook of Scandinavian food and is pretty rockin' in its own right. But that's not the point. The point is:

The Devil’s Rhubarb
Serves 4

8 thin stalks very young rhubarb, trimmed
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup very cold vodka

Peel the rhubarb so that only the juicy interior remains.

Place the sugar in a small bowl. Dip the rhubarb in the sugar and take small bites. Clean your mouth with sips of vodka from small glasses.

THAT IS IT. THAT IS THE ENTIRE RECIPE. I need to sit down, the awesomeness hurts me.

Isn't it much more efficient to skip the rhubarb and sugar and go straight to drinking the vodka?
