Last year I bought my mother lots of gin , and picked lots and lots of berries off her: ‘thorns from hell’ covered sloe tree, so she could make sloe gin. She did not manage to.

I had to empty the freezer of berries. I made jams, and put sloes and gin in bottles.

I have been throwing lots of bottles into the recycling bin.

I have discovered a full bottle of her wine that needs bottling.

The garden has thousands of redcurrents. I have enough jam. I am going to make even more wine. I need the demijohn.

The sloe berries still have gin in them.

I will either be making sloe gin jam, or soaking berries in lemonade.

Washing bottles with lemonade suggests the taste of gin soaked sloe berries in lemonade would be quite nice.
