Ramble | Cocktail Party


Ramble gin sour riff with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and raspberries

The Ramble, from Phil Ward of Death & Co, is essentially just a gin sour with some extra berry goop on top – but oh! What a difference the goop makes!

Normally we’re firmly on team No-Pips when it comes to raspberries in cocktails. We make an exception for the Ramble; sucking up the occasional candied pip through a straw is not at all unpleasant, we’ve found.

Ward suggests that the drink be served in a highball glass, but in our glasses it came up a bit too short, filling only about half the glass. It’s a bit too much for a typical short glass; a double Old Fashioned glass filled with crushed ice ended up doing the trick.



Shake the gin, lemon, and ¾ ounces (or 45 mL) of simple syrup with ice. Strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. In the now-empty shaker, muddle the raspberries with the remaining ½ ounce (or 15 mL) of syrup, until the syrup as taken on a light pink color. Pour the berry-syrup mixture over the crushed ice, and serve with a straw.

Far superior to any other cocktail app

I have only been using the app for a short time but already I can tell that it is far superior to any other cocktail app I have used until now. The user interface is easy to use and visually appealing, and the search function displays recipes as you type which will make this app easy and fast to use. Highly recommended for use as a bartender or server, or at home making drinks for a party or night in. The developer also promises recipes added regularly and the customer support is second to none.
