As Autumn continues we are enjoying the best that the season has to offer. Rummaging through our drinks cabinet we found the key ingredients for this week’s cocktail, The Bramble.
The Bramble is a newcomer to the cocktail scene having been first created in 1984 by Dick Bradsell, who was credited with changing the face of the scene in the 80s. The drink is based on the gin fizz (a new one to try in future!). It is described as a spring drink, but with the blackberry used in it, if feels more like an autumnal one to us.
For this week’s cocktail, you will need:
- 2 measures of gin
- 1 measure of lemon juice
- 1 measure of sugar syrup
- 1 measure of creme du mure (blackberry liqueur)
- Lemon slice and blackberry to garnish
- Crushed ice
To make the drink, add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Once mixed, fill a glass of choice with the crushed ice and pour over the cocktail. Add the lemon and blackberry and there you have this week’s cocktail, The Bramble.
The drink resembles a slushy but is still an enjoyable drink to have on an early autumnal day. Do you have a favourite autumn cocktail, let us know it the comments?
