Autumn is here. It's time to start hibernating and looking forward to some cosy nights in. We'll get you started with this mulled sloe gin recipe, mmmm, mmmm!
Seasonal, traditional and delicious, autumn is the time for sloe gin and mulled drinks. Rich, full-bodied and spiced, these comforting and cosy cocktails are perfect for a cold night, making us feel all warm inside.
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.
1 litre apple juice
Juice of 4 lemons
2 cinnamon sticks
6 dashes orange bitters (optional)
2 sliced oranges
300ml sloe gin (we recommend Elephant Sloe Gin for its rich berry flavour with a hint of spice)
Combine the apple juice, lemon juice, cinnamon sticks and orange bitters in the pan.
Allow to simmer.
Add the orange slices.
Add the sloe gin and stir.
Gather a few friends together, get the fairy lights on and tealights lit. Make it cosy and inviting, then sit, chat and drink some mulled sloe gin!
