Tired and slightly gin-fuzzy on Saturday morning, I emerged into a field with my Mama, brother, Tiff, Evissa and Jay and went sloe berry hunting. It’s been a ritual every year, for about six years or so, to go find the pesky little berries that, when mixed with sugar and liquor, create a syrupy and delicious Christmassy tipple.

 

If you plan on making up a batch of sloe gin this year, you probably want to get yourself out and picking the last few before they all go over ripe….
