No fancy handmade basket was to hand on this occasion, but a quick look through the depths of the pushchair and a spare warm hat was found, which was promptly filled. My lad nodded off at this point, the excitement being too much : )
Two bottles of sloe gin have since been made.
My recipe had to be slightly changed this year due to the reduction in sloes , so I've gone with this for now.
1 Litre of Gin
600 g of sloes
300g of sugar
Two 1 Litre bottles, take each half of this mix well with room for everything and and some spare to enable the mix to be turned on its head now and then.
Thing is, do I crack at Christmas, as its much nicer with an extra year to develop.
