Mulled Sloe Gin
15th November 2016
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…
