The Bramble

The Bramble

If you’ve ever tried one of these or wandered how to make a bramble cocktail then the wonderful folk over at UrbanOutfitters have not only got an easy to follow recipe but also the brilliant photos you can see above.

The key for this gin cocktail is to make sure your glass is filled with crushed ice, don’t just stick to ice cubes as it won’t quite be the same. The crushed ice really compliments the drink and allows for the creme de mure to make it’s way through to the drink when poured over the top. It’s what makes the Bramble cocktail such a beautiful thing to look at.

  • 50ml of Gin
  • 25ml of Lemon Juice
