Sloe Gin!

Now is the time to start making your own gin infusions for Christmas. Sloes, below, are popular and there are still a few in the hedgerows. Or you can use other fruit, raspberries, strawberries or cucumber. Simply purchase gin, place in a clean jar with the fruit, cleaned, and leave for at least 5-15 days depending on the strength required.  Once it has infused, then strain through muslin to remove the solids and taste.  It is worth experimenting with various fruits. Sloe berries will need pricking and cleaning and 2 oz of sugar will need to be added to taste. Gin infusions are popular and can make great Christmas presents!
