Mulled Sloe Gin

An ideal winter warmer made with sloe gin (or damson vodka). The great thing about this drink is that you can make up a batch of mulled apple juice, for all the family to enjoy, and then add the sloe gin (or damson vodka) to the top for a bit of a boozy twist. Delicious...

Method

  1. Combine water, cordial & apple juice in a saucepan on low heat.
  2. Add spices and vanilla.
  3. Let the mixture simmer covered for about 20 - 60 minutes.
  4. Ladle into a mug, teacup, or Irish coffee mug and add sloe gin or damson vodka per glass.
  5. Garnish with a half orange slice and/or a cinnamon stick, or a piece of candied ginger on the rim.
