DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and dry the sloes.
  • Either pop them in the freezer for a week or so, until the skins after cracked, or use a needle or sharp skewer to make holes in their skins.
  • Put the sloes into a large glass jar or bottle.
  • Add the sugar.
  • Pour on the gin.
  • Add the cloves and essence if using.
  • Seal the container.
  • Leave the container for at least two months. Shake it every two or three days at first, then every week.
  • Strain the liquid into smaller bottles. The longer you wait before this step, the better the drink will taste.
  • Be warned - this is strong stuff! (Hic!).
