It’s pretty likely you’re already familiar with the humble sloe gin. Traditionally enjoyed as a warming drink in the depths of the cold English winters, we’d like to propose a modern upgrade. Have you tried Prosecco and sloe gin together?
Of course, gin and Prosecco has been popular for a while now. The growth of gin liqueurs at a lower ABV has, in particular, had gin lovers reaching out for their sparkling wine. However, you can also add in a gin at a higher ABV – if you dare!
This new take on an autumnal classic is made with Boodles Mulberry Gin (30% ABV).
The first of its kind, this gin is actually inspired by traditional English sloe gin. The sweet medley of berries perfectly complements rosemary, nutmeg and sage for a brilliant new take on a British classic.
We also reckon it’s time to update the original Sloe Gin Fizz. While Americans may have created this as a summer drink with citrus and soda water, these Prosecco and sloe gin cocktails will be perfect all-year round.
