How to make a bramble

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

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.
