Sloe Dance

August 17, 2009

Miller's gin
Plymouth sloe gin

Shake ingredients, strain into a collins glass, and top with soda water. Garnish with a mint sprig.

Plymouth sloe gin is nothing like the syrupy stuff some of us drank when we were kids. It is made in the traditional way... by infusing gin with sloe berries, which are plum-like fruit of the blackthorn tree. The result is a sweet, well-balanced plum, cassis flavor.
