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 FIZZ (serves 2)
30ml sloe gin
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.
