Re: truffle boxes

I made lots of these little boxes last Christmas. You could make them smaller or larger depending on the size of the card you are using. You could of course just buy some nice card.

I made some gin, left it for 3 months, I then took the gin out and added more sugar and another bottle of gin...just taken the gin out now from the second lot, left it for about 6 months....the gin is just as nice as the first batch but perhaps not quite as dark.

Smells just like Christmas :D

Very pleasant taste even now. I added a couple of onions and a dried chilli too because I like a bit of heat!
