Had a good time last night at our 'school' Christmas meal. I was the driver so drank water which suits me fine. The evening got more and more merry as it progressed but as the place closed at 9.00pm (it was a tea room/cafe) we moved on to a pub for another hour or two!
Everyone agreed that the starter and dessert was very nice but the main course a little dry. There was a mountain of vegetables (came in a lasagne sized dish and the 7 of us couldn't even get half way through it. They could do with some of Frugal Queen's portion control – would save them a fortune.
Decided to decant my Sloe Berry Chocolate Vodka. The sloes temporarily looked like maltesers but certainly didn't taste like them.
Ended up with a pint of very strong stuff – just a couple of tablespoons licking out the jug started to have an effect! I will definitely make it again but will add the full amount of sugar next time as it is quite tart but lovely.
Also decanted one bottle of Sloe Vodka.
It was quite sweet but was pale and didn't have too much of a sloe taste so will leave the other bottle to infuse for another month or so then mix them together.
