booze!


I love booze.

This weekend I went for a walk with my boyfriend as we stayed in Cumbria after some concerts in England and Wales.

We stumbled across some sloe bushes so collected as many berries as we could in the hope that we could go home to make us some sloe gin.


Yey!


Anyhow - now I have to Google me a recipe, and get going. I bought the gin last night so am all set. I'll post about it when I know what I'm doing! (I'm quite excited.)

I can't stand even the smell of Gin but Sloe gin is a different thing altogether.

I have never had sloe gin. But then I don't drink, either.

I've never been able to drink gin. Good luck with your recipe.

AK, Countrydew, Trav - the three of you don't drink gin. Weird, I say!

I do love gin - even the smell of it neat when I know it would taste disgusting.

Ak - I have heard it's sweet like a liqueur. Never tried it but it should be ready for Christmas.

Gin and I divorced when I was about 16...

We don't talk, we don't send letters...it was a bad breakup

But you have fun
