Love and Confections: Blackberry Lemon Bramble

May 2, 2017

Blackberry Lemon Bramble

A refreshing cocktail with a berry-licious twist: blackberries, lemons, simple syrup, gin and ginger ale combine into a refreshing drink, perfect for happy hour or evening cocktail. It easily turns from a cocktail to a mocktail too!

I love creating fun cocktails and this Bramble is one of my favorites so far. It has the perfect amount of sweet and tart, and incredibly easy to make. Blackberries are in season right now. The gorgeous, plump, and juicy berries are absolutely delicious and perfect for a Spring or Summer cocktail.

My one pet-peeve about these gorgeous purple fruits are the seeds. I dislike any cocktail that has muddled blackberries and keeps the seeds in. To fix that, I used my food processor then strained the mixture so I had the wonderful blackberry flavor, without all the seeds.

I can definitely imagine myself sitting on my patio, enjoying the Spring sunset, with a Blackberry Lemon Bramble in hand. Don't forget some fun garnishes - because we eat with our eyes first. I am growing mint in my container garden at the moment and am loving the pop of color it gives. I also have an alternative if you or someone you know is not imbibing. The mocktail tastes just as delicious!
