Fresh Bramble

Fresh Bramble cocktail with blackberries, simple syrup, gin, and lemon juice

Dick Bradsell’s classic Bramble is a must-drink cocktail that calls for blackberry liqueur, and it’s one of our favorite fruity sours. But if you don’t have any, there’s no need to worry – the editors at PUNCH magazine designed a version of the recipe that calls for fresh blackberries.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the blackberries and simple syrup at the bottom of a short glass. Add the gin and lemon juice, and fill halfway with crushed ice. Using a barspoon or swizzle stick, twist the tool gently with your hands to stir the drink, taking care not to disturb the blackberry bits at the bottom of the glass. Top with more ice, and garnish with fresh blackberries and a lemon wheel.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
