Friday Night Cocktail – Sloe Whisky

Do you remember how in the summer, I made all sorts of infused alcohol and gave it away for Christmas?

Last November, I got hold of some frozen sloes and started a sloe gin and a sloe whisky off as well.

I’ve finally gotten around to decanting the whisky, (the gin needs some more time) and I was really impressed by how well it works.

I used 450g of sloes, 125g of sugar and a litre of Sainsbury blended whisky. I left it for three months and then filtered it.IMG_2802


Now I need to think about how to use it in a cocktail. I’ve seen a recipe based on a perfect manhattan which I’m keen to try.

Anyone got any other suggestions?
