Spirited Sloe 75

This lovely, balanced cocktail comes from Duskie Estes, co-chef and co-owner of Zazu Kitchen + Farm in Sebastopol, California. This recipe features gin made by the restaurant’s neighbor, Spiritworks Distillery (spiritworksdistillery.com), the only US distillery making sloe gin from sloe berries rather than from concentrate.
