Sloe Gin Fizz Cocktail
Sloe Gin Fizz Cocktail
We love Sloe gin during the winter months, but what exactly is a Sloe? Sloes are tiny berries that develop wild in hedgerows around the UK. They're famous for their tart taste and astringent nature, which gives them an interesting (and sometimes disagreeable) flavour when eaten or added to drinks on its own - but these same qualities make it perfect for use as a flavouring ingredient! For example, gin distillers have been incorporating sloe berries into their products since the 16th century. They noticed how well this fruit complements the rich juniper berry flavours present within most gins. The resulting infusion provides just enough spice without overwhelming your senses. Every year, Sloe gin becomes even more popular, from gin distilleries releasing their own to people making it in the comfort of their own home. We love Sloe gin, and we want to celebrate this with a fantastic festive cocktail. We're going to share with you our own sloe gin fizz cocktail recipe.
