The Scorpio

Determined, curious, good at solving problems. The qualities associated with Scorpios don't quite apply to this drink, but those born under the sign will toast it nevertheless. The star ingredient is Plymouth sloe gin, which has been steeped in sloe fruit, a type of plum, infusing it with sweet-tart flavor.
