Sloe Buffalo

A couple of weeks ago Alex and I had a couple of old friends over from Spain and Italy and at the end of a long night we found ourselves at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden. Having tasted through most of the list one cocktail stood out above the others, the Sloe Buffalo. It is made from Sloe Gin, Buffalo Trace bourbon and Passion Fruit. We decided to try to recreate this cocktail at home, and after a few different recipes and a lot of tasting we have come up with our own take on it. The result, we think, is a delicate balance between the sweet, sticky, berry flavours of the Sloe Gin and the warming fruity flow of bourbon and passionfruit.
