Sloe Gin

Ingredients

500g ripe sloes

250g sugar

1 liter of gin

Method

To prepare the sloes before bottling you can prick each one with a pin or a great tip we have picked up is put the sloes in the freezer as this will break down their structure so no need to spend hours pricking them.

Put the sloes in to a large preserving jar and pour over the sugar and the gin.

Seal the jar and shake.

Shake the jar every day until the sugar has dissolved.

Store in a dark cupboard and after about three months strain out the sloes through muslin.

Pour the gin into a sloe gin bottle.

Your sloe gin will now be perfectly fine for drinking but for an enhanced taste, store the sloe gin in a dark cupboard for as long as possible, even years will be fine.
