How to make a Bramble cocktail

Fill your glass 2/3 with crushed ice and pour the ingredients into the glass. Churn the contents with a barspoon in order to mix it properly. Fill the glass completely with crushed ice, garnish the cocktail with a blackberry and serve. Cheers!

The story of Bramble

The cocktail was created in the mid-1980s by Richard Arthur Bradsell at Fred's Club in London's SoHo, where celebrities such as Boy George, Neneh Cherry and Naomi Campbell hung out. Bradsell wanted to make a British cocktail, and for him it was obvious to use blackberries, since as a child on the Isle of Wight he often crawled through prickly blackberry bushes. In this way, we get the taste of the British summer in a glass.

Gin is brandy flavored with juniper berries, which was originally supposed to be a suitable remedy for kidney disorders. Franciscus Sylvius (1614-1672), professor of medicine at the University of Leyden (Holland), is credited with inventing gin, but the timeline makes no sense. Already in 1606, 8 years before his birth, the Netherlands had taxed Geneva (as gin was called at the time). Who really invented gin is difficult to say with certainty, there are many realistic candidates, including a Dane.
