Mulled Sloe Gin Recipe

The leaves have fallen, crisp and orange, the clocks have turned and it’s getting chilly. Autumn is here. But don’t worry, you don’t need to say goodbye to gin with this mulled sloe gin recipe.

Seasonal, traditional and delicious, autumn is the time for sloe gin and mulled drinks. Rich and warming, full-bodied and spiced, they’re the drinks that warm you to your core, eliciting a real sense of comfort and cosiness. Just a taste of red fruits and baking spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and allspice) can make us feel warm and relaxed

Traditionally, wine and cider are the most common mulled beverages but nothing beats a hot, mulled gin. All the almondy, fruity goodness of the sloes with cinnamon, lemon and apples? It’s autumn in a steaming hot glass.
