The Purple Elephant

A new month. A new gin of the month. 

Elephant Sloe Gin is fantastically fruity and bursting with flavor. Not only does this gin do wonders for African wildlife but by taking the original recipe and adding macerated sloe berries into the mix creates a gorgeous warming gin. Fresh and sweet with a burst of sloe berries plus a hint of nuts and spice on the palate, followed by blackberry and, of course, sloe berries on the finish.

So how are we making the most of it? ​

The purple elephant is the perfect autumn cocktail;

2 parts* elephant sloe gin
1 part apple juice (calvados also works if you've got any)
1/2 part lemon juice
1-2 dashes grenadine
egg white​

Shaken and strained into a coupe glass.

Sit back, relax and drink up!​

*Parts made simple. Just stick to the ratios, so if you are making a jug ¼ of the jug could be 1 part, ½ the jug 2 parts. For 1 cocktail, 1 part would be approx 25ml, if you are making 2 cocktails, 1 part would be approx 50ml and so on - experiment and give it a try.
