Strawberry Gin anyone!?

Strawberry Gin: A Great Personal Christmas Gift

Unlike sloe gin, this strawberry version only needs 3 days to stand for the flavours to develop.

Strain and decant into a pretty bottle or several smaller ones, then add a handmade label and ribbons for a personalised Christmas gift.

Delicious served with ice and chilled tonic.
