Master of Cocktails - The Bramble

by Ben Ellefsen     21. April 2014 13:28

Master of Cocktails The Bramble

Happy Monday one and all, hope you're enjoying the long weekend! For this week's (conspicuously non-Easter-themed) #MasterofCocktails we made a Bramble.

This is essentially a gin sour with a lovely slug of Crème de Mûre (Blackberry Liqueur) in it - hence the name. The perfect drink for a pleasant spring evening, like this evening...

(I just touched wood so you can't blame me if it pisses it down yet again. Nope. My hands are clean.)

Master of Cocktails The Bramble ingredients

You’ll be needing these...

List of Ingredients

  • 50ml Bathtub Gin
  • 25ml Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 15ml Monin Sugar Syrup
  • 10ml Edmond Briottet Crème de Mûre
  • Lemon Slice (Garnish)
  • So - to start, we're going to take 50ml of Professor Cornelius Ampleforth’s Bathtub Gin.

    We add this to a stirring glass along with 25ml of freshly-squeezed lemon juice.

    Then add 15ml simple syrup.

    Sling in a handful of ice and give it a quick stir, then check for balance.

    You want this to be slightly sharper than you're comfortable with as we're adding a further sweet liqueur before serving.

    Now, strain over a tumbler full of fresh ice and drizzle over about 10ml of Briottet Crème de Mûre.

    Finally, garnish with a slice of lemon.

    You might be wondering why we went for a long slice of lemon - that'd be as a stirrer. Not just a hat rack my friends.

    Here's what we'll be using for next week's #MasterofCocktails...
