Homemade Sloe Gin
350g Sloes, rinsed and dried
700g Gin, preferably around 40%
175g Granulated sugar
Prick the sloes with a clean tooth pick and pop into a sterile Kilner jar along with the gin and sugar.
Shake daily for a week until the sugar has dissolved, then agitate once a week for the next 3 months. Store in a cool, dark place.
After three months sample the gin, add additional sugar if required. Once you are happy with the flavour strain out the sloes, pour into a serialised bottle, and store for up to a year.
Enjoy over ice.
Take a relaxing walk on a crisp autumn morning foraging for sloes to make your own homemade Sloe Gin. Sugar, gin and sloes will mature into a deliciously rich and fruity liquor in just 3 months.
