I was recently flying Virgin Airlines and had a delicious drink I would like to make at home. Virgin called the drink a "Bramble". It was gin based, with crushed ice and either had muddled blackberries or some sort of blackberry cordial in it. I dont know what, if any other ingredients it contained. It might have had a twist of lemon.

In any event, the blackberry did a great job of bringing out some of the different essences in the gin, while softening the gin considerably. Certainly not the drink I would want if I were in the mood for a martini, but a very nice alternative to the G&T, gimlet, etc if you are looking for a nice summer afternoon drink. Anyone able to help me with the recipe?
