Woman's Weekly recipe If you like sloe gin, you'll love this. It takes two-three months to mature, but it's well worth the wait. Serve neat or with tonic and plenty of ice


  • 300g (10oz) redcurrants
  • 150g (5oz) caster sugar
  • 75cl bottle of gin

This would also make a great gift for Christmas in pretty, decorative bottles.


  1. Crush the redcurrants with the sugar, put in a jar, pour in the gin and seal.
  2. Leave 2-3 months in a cool, dark place, shaking the jar daily for a month, then just when you remember.
  3. Strain through a sieve, then through muslin and pour into a bottle.
  4. Drink neat, or made into a gin and tonic, with lots of ice.
