home brew

gillian's summer brew
This past September, while holiday-making in Edinburgh, I had the pleasure of sipping on some homebrew (homemade wine). It was fruit-based, deliciously tart and deceptively strong. Since then I have been contemplating getting around to making a batch of my own but haven't quite come to the doing part.

I recently came across a kindred spirit and friend's recipe for infused cordials on her blog. I am a huge fan of Miss Gillian. In her writing and music she is an inspiration to me, not to mention she seems to radiate kindness and calm. Her take on the home brew surely makes this a more do-able project. I should probably get started on some batches on my own since this would make a lovely gift for the upcoming season.
