For this week’s Quarantine Cocktail, I’m going to tell you about a modern classic.
There are many versions of this drink but my personal favourite is the Dick Bradsell version. Dick Bradsell was a well-renowned Bartender based in London.
It could be said that he was and still is one of the most influential bartenders in the world.
He invented the Espresso Martini, for example. I rest my case.
This drink in gin-based, it has fresh fruits and a lovely fruit based liquor. The original drink calls for crushed ice and lemon juice. There will be none of that in this recipe though.
The recipe I’m going to share with you is the Bradsell version of the now famous Bramble.
What you’ll need
15ml Crème du Mure
10ml sugar syrup
30ml fresh lime juice
3 fresh blackberries
How to prepare the Bramble
- Put all of the ingredients into a receptacle of your choice (preferably a cocktail shaker)
- Add ice
- Shake it like a polaroid picture and then pour all ingredients into a small glass and serve, enjoy!
Now, this drink requires a bit of elbow grease in your shake. If you don’t have a cocktail shaker, don’t worry. A few alternatives for a cocktail shaker might be a large jam jar (with the lid on), a protein drink bottle or a whipping cream bottle.
I hope you are all keeping safe and well in these strange times. These drinks are meant for you, your family and friends to enjoy over a Skype call or even make the drink whilst using TikTok!
