Sloe gin is a seasonal favourite of ours at Bel & The Dragon. Making it yourself is a sloe process but thankfully our partners & friends at Sipsmith have this covered. Their splendid recipe uses hand picked sloes and their award-winning gin as the base. Furthermore,  it makes a very pleasing winter warming cocktail and a refreshing change from the traditional whisky & wine varieties…

This festive season, you can savour many a tempting tipple at Bel & The Dragon. However, we recommend you try our Mulled Sloe Gin which is made with hot mulled apple juice, heaps of spices and infused with Sipsmith Sloe Gin. At £6 a mug, it is our take on a Sipsmith Distillery favourite and a true winter warmer. 

Sip and snuggle down by the fire at Bel & The Dragon or try the recipe for yourself at home. Trust us, it is gin-sperational…

Serves Four

  • 100ml Sipsmith Sloe Gin
  • 200ml Water
  • 1 litre Cloudy Apple Juice
  • Mulling Spices (Cinnamon, Cloves, Star Anise & Fresh Orange)


Place a cinnamon stick, 6 cloves, 2 star anise & 2 wedges of orange in a muslin bag. Pour the apple juice and water into a saucepan and add the mulling spices. Cover and allow to simmer on a low heat for 10 minutes – do not let it boil. Pour the Sipsmith Sloe Gin into a mug, top with the heated mulled apple juice and garnish with a slice of orange and two cloves.
