    Why has no-one mentioned Sloe Gin?

    Ok, maybe those outside the EU might not have heard of it but it's always in my hip flask for a celebratory swig right after a successful shot. :drooling:

    I've never tried flavouring vodka but I must give it a go. I always like sloe gin and keep a bottle handy. I did make some cherry brandy a couple of years ago from the wild cherry tree in the garden but the intensity of the cherry flavour was lacking compared to commercial fruit. Still drank it though!

    Don't for get to try the 'Gemsbuck' shooter either, it's very nice. Where the 'Springbuck' is three parts Peppermint Liqueur and one part Amarula, the Gemsbuck is three parts Kalua Coffee Liqueur and one part Amarula. Very popular amongst our ladies..! :flashboobies:

    An outstanding drink that I learned from a good friend of mine is called a "Gin Buck." It consists of 1 oz gin, a splash of lemon juice, and the remainder of the glass filled with ginger ale. I prefer Tanqueray as the gin, but any will do.

    When I went to Zimbabwe on my Cape Buffalo hunt, I introduced the my PH to it. They were skeptical at first, but after tasting it he became a true believer. After my father and I took each of our trophies, the he would suggest that we go back to camp "and celebrate with a gin buck!"
