Though sloe gin isn’t a common base spirit in cocktails beyond the Sloe Gin Fizz, it makes a worthy appearance in this elegant drink. Combined with gin, lemon juice and a touch of grenadine, it’s full of flavor and not so potent that it will eclipse your judgement. Make sure to get a bottle of high-quality sloe gin that’s made without any of the artificial stuff.
- 2 oz sloe gin
- .75 oz gin
- .5 oz lemon juice
Add all ingredients to a shaker filled with ice.
Shake and strain into a coupe glass.
