Sick of the same old vodka sodas and gin and tonics whenever you go out? Have no fear, the bramble cocktail is here! It’s a timeless drink that’s both easy to whip up and enjoyed by all. With only a handful of ingredients, you’ll be hailed by your friends as the go to master mixologist of the summer. So don’t be scared off by the fancy name – making a bramble cocktail is a walk in the park!

Steps To Making A Bramble

To make the bramble cocktail, you’ll need a few things, some gin, fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and crème de mûre (a fancy blackberry liqueur). First, fill up a cocktail shaker with some ice cubes. Then, add in two ounces of gin, one ounce of lemon juice, and two teaspoons of simple syrup. Once done, throw the lid on the shaker and get to shaking like your life depends on it.

So you’ve now gotten the basics of the drink down and think you’re a master of making a killer bramble cocktail? Think again. It’s time to step up your game and make it look pretty too. After straining your concoction into a glass full of ice, add a touch of fancy with crème de mûre – let it slowly ooze its way down to the bottom of the glass and top it off with fresh blackberries as well as a sprig of mint. Not only will it taste amazing, but it will look like a drink straight out of a magazine.

The person who said cocktails have to be basic clearly has never had a a Bramble? This sucker is packed with more layers than a flaky croissant minus the mess. Elegant yet oh so flavorful you can taste the gin’s herbal goodness, while the blackberry liqueur brings the sweetness to the relationship. And let’s not forget the acidity from the simple syrup and lemon juice. They give this drink some much-needed sass, cutting through the flavors and leaving you with the perfect amount of tartness. Let’s not forget the fresh stuff now. The blackberries and mint cook up some fresh, fruity vibes, rounding out the drink to make it an indulgent experience you won’t want to forget.
