The other day I was stocking up on berries, my summer snack obsession, and admiring the blackberries. Such an unusual but beautiful fruit and I've always loved the color. I was turning over potential recipes in my head when I remembered the Bramble. It's a sweet gin based drink that's typically made with blackberry liqueur but I always prefer to use fresh fruit anyway.
So the blackberries came home with me along with a fragrant bouquet of fresh mint. And before long I was sipping this stunning drink and making mental plans to buy more blackberries. Cheers!
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Ingredients (1 Serving)
- 1 1/2 oz. Gin
- 1/2 oz. Lemon juice
- 1 oz. Simple syrup (less if berries are very sweet)
- 2 Sprigs fresh mint
- 8 Blackberries
Add the blackberries, mint and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker. Muddle thoroughly using a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon. Add the gin and lemon juice, fill with ice and shake well to further break up the berries. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with an additional sprig of mint and blackberry, if desired.
