Okay, so several years back when I lived in Texas, my drink of choice was the sloe gin fizz. Between a fit of nostalgia and listening to that Loretta Lynn song on my iPod, I've recently become obsessed with them again. So after hunting down a bottle of sloe gin in Los Angeles (an extremely difficult endeavor) I whipped out a bartenders guide and mixed up a pitcher.

They were okay, but not what I remembered. I'm going for a more "adult" version of a Shirley Temple. Any suggestions?

I have a recipe here for a Sloe Gin Fizz, but it doesn't look like what your describing:

Sloe Gin Fizz:
-2oz sloe gin
-1oz sour mix
-soda water to fill

These don't sound like what your looking for, but here are some recipes:  Cheesy

Sloe Driver:
-1 1/2 oz sloe gin
-orange juice to fill

Slow Screw:
-1 1/2 oz vodka
-1 oz sloe gin
-orange juice to fill

I make a Sloe Gin Fizz with half sour mix and half Sloe gin and then shake. Top it with a little 7up after shaking. It's important to shake it though so that the sloe gin and sour mix (which are both very thick) mix well.

Don't forget a Sloe Comfortable Screw. Same as the Sloe Screw, but you throw a little SoCo in there. Shake that one well too.

Thanks. The recipe I was using had club soda and powdered sugar involved. I think 7Up might give me that missing flavor.

I have a friend coming to visit from Arizona in a couple of weeks. He has already been enlisted in helping me refine the recipe -- swearing up and down when he was a kid he used to mix them for his mom back in the 70s.
