How to make the Bramble – an easy gin drink!

This modern classic combines botanical gin with tart lemon and rich crème de mûre (blackberry liqueur).

In today’s video we’re making the Bramble! Served over crushed ice, the presentation is eye-catching and the taste is outstanding – bright and refreshing with a berry sweetness rounding it out. I’ve seen many variations on this drink, but it’s hard to top the original. Hope you try this one! If you don’t have crème de mûre, a raspberry liqueur can easily be substituted for an equally delicious cocktail! Cheers, everyone!
