A sloe day
It isn't. It's actually made using a similar technique to flavoured oils. It's an odd idea. As TheChemist pointed out to me, you take something unpalatable as gin, mix it with something horrible tasting like sloes, and you get something really drinkable.
This is probably something which belongs on the Bubble Brothers site, but here is TheChemist's method for making sloe gin.
Obtain your sloes.
Obtain your gin
Obtain some empty clean bottles with seal-able lids
Half fill bottle with sloes
Add 1 Oz. sugar per 250 ml capacity of the bottle e.g. 3 ozs for a 750ml bottle Fill the bottle with gin
Shakes occasionally (once a day, then once a week or not at all ) Sample after 3-4 months.
Filter it thought a coffee filter to extract the fruit, use vacuum filtration if you can.
Re-bottle and drink at leisure.
It came to mind because of my cooking. More on that in the next post.
