Yuzu Ramble

Yuzu Ramble sour cocktail with fresh blackberries, gin, yuzu juice, and cinnamon syrup

The Yuzu Ramble by Simone Goldberg at NYC’s NO BAR is a delicious blackberry-gin sour that is one of the prettiest drinks in our index, featuring a gorgeous purple-pink gradient thanks to the muddled blackberries. But it’s not just here for looks; this twist on a classic fresh Bramble is a bouquet of amazing flavors. Tart, floral yuzu juice is the star of the show here, giving way to earthy cinnamon, botanical gin, and rich juicy blackberry.

For a drink served in a Collins glass, this one is a little on the small size. For the best visual effect, choose the smallest, narrowest tall glass you have, and use crushed or pebble ice rather than whole cubes, if you can.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the blackberries at the bottom of a tall glass. Fill halfway with crushed ice. Shake the remaining ingredients with crushed ice and pour unstrained into the glass. Top with more crushed ice if needed, and garnish with a fresh blackberry and a lemon slice or twist.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
