Retro Happy Hour: Sloe Gin Cocktail

According to Wikipedia:

Sloe gin is a red liqueur flavoured with sloe (blackthorn) berries, which are a small fruit relative of the plum. Sloe gin has an alcohol content between 15 and 30 percent by volume. The traditional way of making sloe gin is to infuse gin with the berries. Sugar is required to ensure the sloe juices are extracted from the fruit.

The recipe comes from this 1914 ad.

One third-Gordon Sloe Gin
One-third Gordon Dry Gin
One-third French Vermouth
