This is the second guest post from Katherine Gledhill after her visit to the Bombay Sapphire sloe gin masterclass last week. Yesterday she told us about a way to make sloe gin that doesn’t take the usual three months. Next up, cocktails.

After having our eyes dazzled, taste buds tickled and appetites well and truly whetted with a demonstration of seven different sloe gin cocktails, we had a chance to play dress up and take on the mixologist’s mantle. I had a whale of a time making a Sapphire Sloeberry Flip. Here’s how you do it.

Ingredients:

35ml Bombay Sapphire Sloe Gin

20ml Bacardi 8 Year Old Rum

2 tsp Caster Sugar

1 Whole Egg

Cubed Ice

Ground Peppercorns

Method:

1. Mix the sloe gin, rum and the egg and shake.

2. Add cubed ice and shake again.

3. Fine strain into a chilled Champagne flute and garnish with ground black pepper to create a rich, silky smooth, spicy Christmas cocktail.

At the end of the evening I left feeling inspired, ready to take on the world and the Christmas party with the batch of sloe gin I’ve spent so many months making at home. With a cocktail shaker added to the Christmas wish list (this one is perfect for your cocktail loving friends and family and can be personalised) I am certain that my friends and I will be enjoying some more Sloeberry flipping and Sapphire Sloe Cobbling very soon.

If you’d rather have your sloe gin cocktail mixed for you, the Sapphire Sloeberry Fizz is on the menu at House of Hackney’s Bombay Sapphire-sponsored gin den until December 31st.
