    I'm lucky enough to live in the country and have plenty of brambles and sloes in the nearby hedges.

    I want to make some sloe gin, but I've seen different recipes, some call for 500gm of sloes and the same amount of sugar, others call for much less. Has anyone got a tried and tested recipe.

    Also looking to make bramble brandy, again has anyone got a tried ad tested recipe for this?

    Thanks on advance for the replies

    Find an empty gin bottle. Prick your sloes all over with a pin. Fill the gin bottle with one quarter sloes. Add sugar, about half the amount of sloes. Top up with gin. Add a few whole almonds. Leave it alone for a month, then shake it up to help disolve the sugar. Shake it up every few weeks. Taste regularly! (Hic!)
