Well it is the season to be merry! This evening I cracked open a bottle of Sloe Gin that I had made a few years ago and boy has it warmed me up. I was not able to locate any sloes this year but will definitely try and source some for next as my limited stock will not last for ever. Sloe Gin is one of the spirits I first played with and has remained a constant to be made every year that is if I can get hold of the sloes. Next year though I will start buying the odd bottle of Gin and Vodka where I can funds allowing so I have a stock ready for later in the year ready to utilise - Toffee Vodka, home made Lemoncello, Blackberry Whisky, Rhubarb, and Gooseberry voddies are other recipes that can be made also utilising a gin or vodka base, even pear drops or bubble gum can be used.
Tomorrow night now I may well have to make some mulled wine. Another favourite. I have a lot to do today so it will be nice to sit down in the warm and relax and let the wine do its work. OH is not keen but I love it.
Right I think its about time I actually got to bed.
Nighty Night, Sleep tight.
