Ha ha I'm anything but game
I've only ever tried sloe gin. But I've read that once you empty the bottle they make a good desert with chocolate melted over the top. I plan to make a sloe / rosehip jelly, with a few blackberries too perhaps.
The sloes are still very bitter even after sitting on the sugar and gin; I've tried chocolate over them but not enjoyed them.
However, after taking the gin off, pour a bottle of red wine over them, leave it a few days then bottle the liqueur; it makes a very fine port-like drink - very nice with cheese.
Edited - checked with the missus who made it; the wine was over a week on the sloes and, 150ml of brandy was added to it before bottling!
