Sloe Gin

added by River Cottage Booze Handbook

From John Wright's River Cottage Booze handbook: This recipe is the basis for most infusions so it is well worth reading through even if sloe gin is not for you (though why that would be so I cannot imagine). Sugar quantities and timings vary between recipes. My basic sloe gin recipe is extremely simple; no added flavourings such as juniper berries or almonds, just straight in the jar with all three basic ingredients. Actually there is one very big thing I do differently – I prefer to use vodka. It gives a cleaner flavour and is palatable sooner than when using gin.
