Cocktail University: All About Sloe Gin.

Sloe gin, the liqueur that is the base for the lovely Hermione Granger, is a bit of a mystery to even my most booze-educated friends. "Um...what's that?", I always get asked, when I tell them that delicious tartness comes from sloe gin. Like a lot of forgotten cocktail ingredients resuscitated in recent years, sloe gin has a pretty interesting history. Read all about it at the Kitchn, where I'll be guest-writing a cocktail column for the next three weeks.


  1. I love gin. I am going to have to try this!

  2. I feel like I should tell you that sloe gin does not taste very much like gin. But I think you will like it anyway. :)
