Bramble Cocktail
Table of Contents

The Bramble cocktail was created in London by renowned bartender Dick Bradsell back in 1984 and has been present in the cocktail industry ever since. This drink is a combination of gin, lemon juice, creme de mure, and simple syrup. It is usually served with crushed ice and garnished with a slice of lemon and blackberries. We think that the sweetness of the sugar syrup and the tartness of the lemon juice balance out the flavors of the gin, creating an incredibly refreshing beverage.

This cocktail has been popularized by bars all over the world and has become a staple in any cocktail enthusiast’s repertoire.

  • Fun fact: The term ‘bramble’ is derived from blackberry bushes, thus giving the drink its name.
