The bramble cocktail is a refreshing summer drink that combines fresh muddled blackberries, gin, lemon juice and sparkling water.
- Fill a glass with ice.
- Muddle ripe juicy blackberries with fresh lemon juice in a shaker. Fill with ice.
- Add gin, optional Blackberry liqueur, and sweetener of choice. Shake well.
- Strain. I had to use a fine-mesh strainer, because the built-in strainer in the shaker did not strain the seeds.
- Pour over ice and top with sparkling water with a twist of lemon and top with a blackberry.
If not adding the Blackberry Liqueur, you may need to add more sweetener, so sweeten to taste.
You could also make a big batch of this, multiplying the recipe to your desired amount. Place everything (except the soda) in a large mason jar and store in the fridge for up to 2 days. When ready to serve, strain, add the sparkling water to taste, and garnish with a few blackberries, lemon slices, and mint.
Ginger ale is also nice here instead of sparkling water.
