Cocktail Hour: The Bramble

There's some variations on the Bramble (and I'm quite partial to one I had not long ago that was made with apple as well as blackberries) but if you're looking for the simple classic then this recipe should be perfect. It was invented by Dick Bradsell - the UK's most famed barman and it seems only right to keep the recipe the same. Strong, but sweet blackberry flavour, with a kick of gin behind it. It's a great cocktail that's perfect for autumn evenings.

You'll need these things:
  • 50ml gin
  • 10ml creme de mure
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 10ml sugar syrup
  • Crushed ice
  • Blackberries
You'll need to do these things:

Fill an old-fashioned glass with the crushed ice. Pour in the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup. Stir and add more crushed ice if you need to. Then lace with the creme de mure and garnish with the blackberries. Simple, perfect.
