This time, we’re enjoying Blackberry Bramble Cocktails! An easy and refreshing beverage that allows for substitutions as needed. Don’t have gin? Bourbon or vodka will taste great too! Don’t want it too sweet? Omit the simple syrup. Ginger beer can be substituted with ginger ale, sprite, or a splash of soda and a little simple syrup- make it your own! I love to throw a little spring of mint in if I have some laying around. This is an easy cocktail to turn into a mocktail- simply exclude the alcohol and enjoy the refreshing blackberry, ginger beer, lemon combination all on its own, or add a splash of lemonade instead of gin!
½ C fresh blackberries
2 Ounces Dry Gin
1 Ounce simple syrup or maple or agave (optional- especially if using ginger soda instead of ginger beer)
1 1/2 Ounce fresh lemon juice
Ginger Brew or Soda
In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup or agave, until broken up and they release their juice.
Double strain, using a fine mesh strainer, to remove seeds.
Fill 3-4 rocks glasses with ice. Divide blackberry -gin mix among the glasses, and top with soda or ginger brew. Garnish with a blackberry and lemon zest.
