    I don't have any sloes near me but do have plenty of blackberries which I use with any spirit I have to hand, so far I've tried vodka, whisky and gin - all successful !!

    That sounds great!

    Unfortunately I won't be trying anything new this year as I'm moving house and need to declutter. But where I'm going there should be a huge choice of free fruits to harvest
    Could you do with a Money Makeover?

    Either that or make gin from vodka.

    Looking at mysupermarket, though, vodka isn't that much cheaper than gin at the moment so you'd be doing it for the fun of it and experience rather than saving money.

    I am currently waiting for a batch of pink grapefruit gin to be ready for testing! Would love to have a go at making sloe gin but have never found any sloes local to me

    I'm not an alcoholic, so have no burning desire to buy alcohol and spend time (and money) tracking down strange fruit in bushes etc ... and lugging it home.

    I'll stick to my Pepsi.
