How to make a bramble

Fruity, sharp, and refreshing, this is the perfect sunny day drink. But how exactly do you make a bramble?

By David Clack

Just like the espresso martini, this punchy drink is the invention of recently departed cocktail legend Dick Bradsell. Given that the whole thing is made in the glass, this is a good option for people lacking in proper cocktail kit. And if you don’t own a spoon, chances are cocktails aren’t your thing anyway.

Bramble recipe:

50ml gin
25ml lemon juice
12.5ml sugar syrup

Add crushed ice, stir in glass, add more ice, pour over 10ml crème de mûre, garnish with blackberries.
