It really started to feel like Autumn in the last few days (August has been a washout here in the UK to be honest) but Autumn is probably my favourite season. Something about the leaves and the weather turning makes me feel at home, and I love the move towards cosy winter nights in and crisp walks in the Autumn sunshine.
One of the best things about Autumn is that it’s sloe gin season! I hope to be able to get out there in the next few weeks and get some sloes to make some more sloe gin. We haven’t managed it the last couple of years what with weddings, and then being away last year.
For our Autumn wedding we made our own sloe gin the year before and used it, with other shop-bought treats, to make a ‘Pimp my Prosecco’ bar. This went down incredibly well with certain guests. My sister claims to have tried all of the flavours and I think managed five proseccos during the drinks and photos!!
If I manage to get out and pick some sloes this Autumn I will take some photos and post the recipe!
