Adam and Joanne's Tips
- Note on Sloe Gin: Since there are two varieties of sloe gin that are available the US, the recipe changes based on which you have at home. The recipe above assumes that you are using the less expensive 30-proof variety of sloe gin. If you are using the more expensive, higher proof option, do not add additional gin, and instead increase the amount of sloe gin from 1 ounce to 2 ounces.
- Note on simple syrup: We realize we are only asking you to use 1 teaspoon of simple syrup and if you are only making one or two drinks, you may not want to make simple syrup yourself. You can buy it or substitute regular sugar. If using sugar, you will need to stir or shake the gin, lemon juice and sugar well so that the sugar granules dissolve. If you do plan on making your own simple syrup, it is very easy and you can follow our instructions by seeing our article for how to make simple syrup.
