5 – Bramble
Not a massive gin fan (you’re missing out)? Don’t let that put you off though as the blackberry liqueur balances out it’s bitterness and gives a lovely fruity flavour to this cocktail.
“The only downside to this drink is that it is served over crushed ice (to keep it cold, don’t complain!) and in a short glass, so I tend to find it goes quicker compared to sipping a Martini.”
35ml/1½fl oz gin
- 20ml/¾fl oz lemon juice
1 tsp sugar syrup
15ml/½ fl oz blackberry liqueur
slice of lemon and a blackberry, to garnish
Place all of the ingredients into a tumbler filled with crushed ice and stir well.
