Sloe Gin Cocktails & Drink Recipes

Sloe gin is a delicious liqueur made with sloe berries (relatives of the plum) infused into gin.

It’s slowly steeped to produce an enriching, fruity flavor and deep red hue.

And from a bubbly sloe gin fizz to a flavorful berry spritz, these potent cocktails are too good to be true.

So get your shaker ready and raise your glass to these bright concoctions!

1. Sloe Gin Fizz

Are you looking for a drink that’s light, fizzy, and bursting with flavor? Then you need a glass of sloe gin fizz!

Made with sloe gin, Campari, and lemon juice, it’s got a delightfully zesty flavor.

And thanks to the egg white, the mouthfeel is fizzy but not sharp.

With its balance of sweet, tart flavors and effervescent bubbles, it’s a party in a glass.

Ingredients: sloe gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, Campari, egg white

2. Very Berry Spritz

Brighten your day with a glass of this bright, fruity berry spritz!

This cocktail combines the sweet tang of sloe gin with the crisp sparkle of wine.

Plus, it’s topped with a splash of soda for a refreshing, bubbly treat that’ll tickle your nose.

It’s ideal for anyone wanting a drink with low alcohol content.

Ingredients: sloe gin, sparkling wine, soda, cracked black pepper, strawberries & orange wheel (for garnish)

3. Charlie Chaplin Cocktail

Introducing the Charlie Chaplin cocktail – the drink that’s as timeless and charming as the man himself! 

It’s one of those unique apricot cocktails with a sweet and sour kick that’ll make you want to dance like the Tramp. 

Whether you’re a Chaplin fan or simply need something delicious, this cocktail is perfect. 

Ingredients: sloe gin, apricot brandy, lime juice, gin, orange wheel (for garnish)

4. Take it Sloe

I think I like the name of this almost as much as the drink itself! It makes me want to kick up my feet and relax.

But between the sloe gin and coffee grain whiskey, it’ll awaken your senses with just one sip.

I love the pale pink hue of this one and the lovely froth on top. It almost looks like a pink latte!

Ingredients: coffee grain whiskey, sloe gin, lemon juice, aquafaba, club soda, Angostura Bitters

5. The Savoy Tango

Where the drink above is enchanting and summery, this dark bevvy is more suited to fall.

That deep red is like something straight out of a fairytale – only it’s from the dark side of the forest.

Still, it has a nice fruity kick and a warm finish as it goes down. Kind of like poison.

But don’t worry, this one won’t put you to sleep. Instead, you’ll want to dance the night away.

Ingredients: sloe gin, apple brandy

6. Sloe Gin Collins

Like the gin fizz above, this one is super zippy. But unlike that recipe, this one really leans into the sourness.

I happen to love the OG Tom Collins, and I also typically go for sweeter drinks.

But this one is surprisingly pleasant. And that’s all down to the sloe gin and its fruity finish.

Ingredients: lemon juice, sloe gin, sparkling water

7. Sloe Days

This cozy blend of sloe gin, apple brandy, and dry Vermouth is just what you need after a chilly day raking leaves.

It’s warming, sweet, and best served by a roaring fire.

This drink is a perfect choice if you want to slow down and enjoy life’s simple pleasures. So take a sip, and let the good times roll!

Ingredients: sloe gin, apple brandy, honey or agave nectar, lime juice, dry Vermouth

8. Alabama Slammer

Here’s one for all the Southern Belles! It’s sweet, sassy, and oh-so-fruity. 

You’ll get plenty of fruity notes, including sloe berries, peach, and orange, plus a fabulous layer of sweet almonds.

This cocktail is like a Southern party in a glass. And it’s the kind of drink that makes you want to let loose on the dance floor.

Ingredients: Amaretto, sloe gin, Southern Comfort, orange juice

9. Winter Aperol Spritz with Sloe Gin

Get ready for the cold season with this wintery twist on the classic Aperol Spritz.

This seasonal cocktail perfectly combines bright, refreshing Aperol and rich, fruity sloe gin.

With its vibrant orange hue and sparkling finish, it’s sure to brighten the dreary winter days. 

So why settle for a boring hot toddy when you could be sipping on this cocktail? Give it a try and see for yourself!

Ingredients: Aperol, sloe gin, soda water, Prosecco

10. Red Death

Are you feeling adventurous and want to add a little excitement to your evening? Mix up the Red Death cocktail!

It’s a powerful blend of booze with plenty of refreshing fruit juices.

The Red Death is like a wild party with its vibrant crimson hue and spicy kick. It’s the perfect drink to jazz up your night and turn up the heat.

Ingredients: Southern Comfort, vodka, sloe gin, Triple Sec, blackberry brandy, orange juice, pineapple juice
