Advent Challenge, Day 13; Sloe Gin

December 13th
One of my favorite alcoholic drinks has got to be a good gin but the only thing that can beat that would be the dark fruity flavor of Sloe Gin. Its easy to make and its sure to warm you up on a cold winters day. Sloes are the fruit of the Black Thorn tree and are best picked in autumn, most common around hedges, parklands and woods. So once you have procured yourself some of theses berries, here is the recipe. Enjoy.

450g of Sloe Berries
225g of Caster Suger
1 liter of Gin

1. Pierce the tough skin of the berries with a needle and place into a sterile jar.
2. Add the sugar and gin, seal the jar and shake well.
3. Store in a cool dark cupboard for 2 weeks and shake once a week for 2 months.
4. Strain the sloe gin through muslin into a sterilised bottle.

Check back later for the next posts. Hope you enjoyed this one. Until next time bros, carry on cooking.
