Back to all cocktails

It's a crying shame that sloe gin is adored for two weeks in the year then relegated to the back of the cupboard until next Christmas.

Sloe gin is deliciously sweet with rich notes of plum and red berries. Combining this fruity sweetness with the bitter notes found in Fever-Tree Lemon Tonic Water makes for a perfectly balanced and refreshing long drink. This is the perfect daytime cocktail and is ideal for those looking for something sweeter than an ordinary gin and tonic.

50ml of Sloe Gin
