Sloe Gin Fizz

CountryWives often make sloe gin. The berries are plentiful and gratis, the taste truly scrumptious. Nothing I like more than a quick slurp from Husband’s hip flask when out in the field. So, with Christmas fast approaching, thought it was time to mention this little beauty… a Sloe Gin Fizz is the perfect cocktail to welcome your guests.

Sloe Gin FizzSLOE GIN FIZZ (serves 2)
30ml gin
30ml sloe gin
30ml lemon
5ml sugar
Fizz (champagne, prosecco or cava) – to top up (anything so long as it’s not too sweet)
Lemon twist, to garnish

Put all the ingredients apart from the fizz in a cocktail shaker, shake over cubed ice for a good 10 seconds, then strain into a champagne flute. Top with fizz of choice, garnish with a lemon twist and serve.
