PREVIOUS: Mixed Berry Sherbet NEXT: Bramble

Ingredients (6)

  • 2 parts Juniper and Bay Leaf Syrup
  • 1 part freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 sprig fresh tarragon
  • 6 blackberries
  • Crushed ice
  • Soda water

The alcohol used in a classic Bramble may be missing, but the flavor is not. Juniper and Bay Leaf Syrup and fresh tarragon mimic the London dry gin, and then, just like the real thing, the drink is loaded up with blackberries and rounded out with lemon juice. You’ll never notice what’s missing.
