Sloe Gin & Ginger Beer Cocktail

A cheeky quick little post, mainly so I never forget this cocktail, missing out on this would be a tragedy! 

I tell you it is going to be favourite drink of summer.  An absolute glugger not too sweet, not to sour and so refreshing. The fruity sweetness of the sloe gin is counteracted by the lime perfectly

Makes 1 Drink

2 Measures Sloe Gin
Juice of 1 Lime
Jamaican Ginger Beer

Take a tumbler of crushed ice pour over the sloe gin and lime juice, top up with ginger beer - not ginger ale, it needs the fiery punch of root ginger.  Enjoy.

I also have this little recipe from the time I was in Hong Kong.  It is a nice alcohol free drink, but makes you feel like you are actually having a tot.

Over crushed ice add ginger beer and ginger ale and finish with a few drops of Angostura Bitters

This one is best when you tinker around with the quantities to find what suits you best, I love lots of Angostura so I put in around 7 good drops.  If you don't like the snap of ginger beer add more ginger ale and vice versa.
