Bramble

The Bramble is a gin-based cocktail that seems to have slipped off many bartenders’ radar, but it’s a must-drink when blackberries are in season.

What to buy: Make sure you use good-quality dry gin and crème de mûre—the lesser-quality versions will make it too harsh and cloying. Crème de mûre is a blackberry-flavored liqueur and can be found in specialty liquor stores or online. If you can’t find crème de mûre, you can substitute crème de cassis (black currant), but don’t tell any cocktail purists.

This recipe was featured as part of our Summer Fruit Cocktails photo gallery. For a fruity gin drink that’s lighter on the alcohol, try our Pimm’s Cup recipe.

Instructions

  1. 1Combine the lemon juice and blackberries in a rocks glass and muddle until the berries are broken up.
  2. 2Add some crushed ice and the crème de mûre and gin, stir to combine, and serve.
