Sloe gin isn't just good friends with Apple juice, its invited to party with port as well.

If you're not one to keep a selection of fortified wine on the shelf, The Pedrino range of Vermouth based "spirtz" mixers are ideal for just a couple of drinks and without being overtly boozy.

The orange wedge does just enough to balance off the bitter finish of the ruby spritz and the port flavours do a great of giving the sloe more body.
