The Sloe Comfortable Screw is a remnant from the past, a member of that much maligned family of cocktails that we derisively call ‘Disco Drinks’. The original version is, it must be said, not a fantastic drink, despite this though it is still one of the most searched for cocktail recipes online! Here, we re-imagine it for the modern palate, serving it shorter, with fresher flavours, and less sugar than the original.
25mls Portobello Sloeberry & Blackcurrant
10mls Southern Comfort Black
100mls Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
Three drops saline solution
Whip shake (just 1 cube of ice) all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and then quick pour over a single, large block/cube of ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with an orange slice on the rim.
