How to Make a Bramble Recipe
Using a bar shaker, combine 2 blackberries, 2 minced leaves, lemon juice, and simple syrup and muddle it until everything is crushed.
Add the gin and vodka and then shake it to combine.
Add tonic water to the cocktail and garnish with lemon, blackberries, and mint leaves.
Do I Have to Use Fresh Berries?
While fresh blackberries always taste better, using frozen blackberries is ok. I like to make sure the berries are thawed before adding them to the drink so that berries do not make the drink watery.
What Gin is Best for a Bramble?
When choosing a gin, you want to choose a gin that is dry or extra dry for the best flavor in this Blackberry Lemon Gin & Tonic. Of course, you can use whatever type or brand of gin you like.
