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.
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.
