The Bramble(ish)

Its Sunday evening and the wonderful October weather we have been having has just ended. Rain has began to sweep into Cornwall and the temperature today felt like a true representation of Autumn. With this in mind we thought we should make use of the last of the Blackberries out in the garden and make a few Bramble cocktails to relax with. the Bramble was created in 1984 by Dick Bradsell at Fred’s Club in London’s Soho. A real Bramble should contain Creme de Mure but we were fresh out at the homebar. So a more than adequate replacement is Creme de Cassis, you should be able to find this at most supermarkets and is a worthy addition to any home bar.

Ingredients:

Glass Type: Rocks Glass

  • Two measures of  Tarquins Gin
  • 1/4 measure of Creme de Cassis
  • 1 and a half measures of lemon juice
  • half a measure of Simple Syrup
  • Blackberries to garnish

Method:

Shake the Gin, Creme de Cassis, lemon juice and simple syrup in a boston can. Strain into a rock glass pre chilled and filled with ice, then garnish with a couple blackberries. A simple and delicious taste of autumn.
