Sloe (Blackthorn) Liqueur Recipes

Nalivkas (Fruit Liqueurs)

 
 
Sloe Liqueur
Ingredients:

1 lb. (450 g) sloes

3 cups (710 ml) gin or vodka
1 1/2 cup (350 g) sugar
Instructions:
Wash and dry the fruit, remove all stems, and freeze the sloes for at least a couple of days (not necessary if they are picked after the first frost). Place the fruit in a suitable container, add gin or vodka, and shake twice a week for 4-8 weeks. Transfer most of the liquid to a bottle. Add the sugar to the remaining sloes. Shake twice a day until all sugar has dissolved; this may take up to two weeks. Mix this sweet syrup with the first unsweetened liquid. After three months strain the liqueur thru a muslin cloth. Add some more sugar if necessary. The liqueur should mellow for 6 months before used.
