Sloe gin, is sweet

  • i am hitting a bottle my mum made for me at xmas, and it is bloody good.

  • I've got a lot of love for Sloe Gin. It is delicious.

  • threads started at 3 in the am = win

  • Ha!

    Come round to ours and I'll make you an amazing cocktail with sloe gin. You may not be able to cycle home though.

  • Provide me with an address and I'll be there to drink all your Sloe Gin. I don't even care if I'm not invited.

  • haha, piss head ..wish I had some for the bus journey back to london, ah well sloe whisky it is..

  • Gin...

    /Pukes on night bus floor

  • i love sloe gin, when im on my horse, yee ha

  • 1 part gin, 1 part sloe gin, 1 part pineapple/grapefruit juice

  • I had some Sloe Ale yesterday, delicious. Fruity and refreshing, but not sweet.

  • For so many years I have cycled down Layhams Road to escape into the countryside and only really felt I had succeeded once I was South of the A25. Today three of us went as far as the last suburban house on the left and walked across the fields to Nash. We picked about 3lbs of sloes in half an hour and came home. Methinks the coming winter will be cheered by plenty of sloe gin.

  • I started some mulberry vodka a couple of weeks ago. My parents have a mulberry tree and they always have no idea what to do with them.
    It already looks and smells pretty good, and the tree is still cropping, so I'll probably do some more this weekend. They also have a very good crop of damsons still going....
    Mulberries are complete buggers to pick though, the ripe ones fall off the tree as soon as you start jogging the branches about. You pretty soon get covered in bright red juice, which is really bad for staining clothes.

  • Rhubarb Gin is GO!

    Gin goes in tomorrow...

  • That’s a good idea, I’ve got so much rhubarb I don’t know what to do with it! Rhubarb and ginger jam going on later.

  • Yeah there's only so much stewed rhubarb can be eaten...

    This is the recipe I used except allowing the sugar & rhubarb to hang out for a day first...­

    It's looking like this already so ready to add Gin shortly instead of waiting overnight now.

  • P.s. Rhubarb Gin almost ready to bottle. Got a Redcurrant Batch going too.

  • Ok I know what I’m doing tomorrow !

  • The other day I started making a gin and tonic then realised I was out of tonic. I did however have a can of gin and tonic, so I made gin and gin and tonic.
