It’s World Gin Day and what better way to celebrate than with my favourite Gin Cocktail, The Bramble!

The Bramble might be inspired by the flavours of autumn and winter, but with the combo of citrusy lemon, sweet sugar and tart blackberries it suits a warm summers day too! And it looks beautiful too – perfect for a sweet instagram post to make all your friends jealous!


50ml Gin

Crushed ice

30ml fresh lemon Juice

1 tbsp, sugar syrup

1 tbsp, blackberry liqueur, such as creme de mure

Lemon slice and blackberries, to garnish


Fill cocktail shaker with ice, and add gin, lemon slice and sugar syrup. Shake until well chilled.

Fill a small tumbler with crushed ice and pour over the shaken mixture.

Garnish with your lemon slice and blackberries

Drizzle the Creme de Mure over the top so that it ‘bleeds’ down into the glass
