‘Tis is the season for warm apple and blackberry pie and the faint aroma of pine is in the air. Colder days call for an autumnal cocktail encapsulating all these scents, and the Bramble ticks the box! Created in the mid-80s, the Bramble is a refreshingly simple tipple - the key is to use crushed ice so that the blackberry liqueur dilutes as it trickles down, leaving you with a perfectly balanced blend of sweet, sour and boozy!
60ml dry gin
30ml lemon juice, freshly squeezed
15ml sugar syrup
15ml crème de mûre (blackberry liqueur)
Lemon slice, to garnish
Fresh blackberries, to garnish
In a shaker packed with ice, shake gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup vigorously. Strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Drizzle liqueur over ice, and garnish with lemon and blackberries to serve.
