It’s coming up to Christmas. People are stocking up on advocaat, sloe gin and all other sorts of booze to get squiffy on over Christmas. I thought I should join them all. The only thing is… just buying booze, it’s a bit boring. I mean, sure, it’ll get me drunk, and that’ll be great, anything to make life a little more bearable, but that’s just not for me. Why buy flavoured vodka based drinks, when you can make them with whatever you want?!
So now, I introduce to you:
UNCLE JOE’S MINT BALLS VODKA
All you need is 2 bags of Uncle Joe’s Mint Balls, a half bottle of vodka, a Kilner jar, and some patience…
Obviously, you don’t have to add both bags of sweeties – I added about one and a half and kept tasting until it tasted minty enough for me. If you want to do a whole bottle, just get four bags of Mint Balls. Sorted.
Now I can recreate a night out in Wigan Pier in the comfort of my bedroom…
