I don’t like gin – I actively dislike it – to me, it’s like drinking perfume. Mike has been known to indulge, but that was in his past life as a middle-class English person. I have tried Sloe gin, and didn’t like that either – a bit sickly. BUT…..a bit before Christmas, we were in Judith Glue’s and there was a gin–tasting table, with free tots of gin, to tempt the punters – and it worked. We both tried a tot of Rock Rose Caithness Gin, and it was gorgeous, as reported at the end of this piece……………
We bought a bottle, and it stood in the cupboard, until yesterday evening when, after my tea, I was ready for the first ice cream of the season as my afters – Orkney Ice Cream, of course! So, here it is, nicely timed for the warmer weather coming – not exactly a recipe – a bowl of Vanilla Orkney Ice Cream, with a drizzle – just a drizzle, of Rock Rose Caithness Sloe Gin, over it. Seriously good. Try it.
I like to spread the good stuff.
