However, my favourite is sloe gin - homemade in Autumn, or leftover from the previous year. On its own over ice, or a small drop in the bottom of a glass of bubbly is the ideal Christmas flavour.
|This is the remains of last year's Sloe gin - still yummy|
|The sloes were ready very early this year - we picked these on 1st October|
They're still in the freezer but I'll get around to them early in the new year
and have a new bottle ready for next winter.
