I bet you can guess what’s in the Sloe Driver cocktail. That’s right! Sloe gin! That very sweet, berry flavored stuff that bears no relation at all to gin.
This orange juice in this recipe cuts the sweetness of the sloe gin and livens it up with its tangy notes. I used full pulp orange juice in this one, just as a personal preference, so that’s why it looks so thick in the photo. Made this way, it’s almost like a sweet alternative to a Bloody Mary.
- 2 ounces sloe gin
- 1 ounce vodka
- 4 ounces orange juice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the ingredients. Shake well and strain the mixture into a highball glass.
