Squid Mixes: Sloe Gin and Tonic

Sloe gin is a gin-based liqueur made with sloes, typically produced in England.  A sloe is a plum-like fruit from the blackthorn plant.  Vermont liquor stores don't generally carry sloe gin so I picked up a bottle on our most recent trip to Massachusetts.

I went simple on my maiden voyage: a sloe gin and tonic.  Not surprisingly, sloe gin is a bit on the sweeter side which pairs nicely with tonic water, taking the edge off of the quinine.  I expect we'll be trying sloe gin fizzes soon.
