Ingredients

Full quantities can be found in the recipe card below. Let’s talk about what we are using for this berry drink:

Fresh Blackberries – frozen blackberries will also work great

Rosemary Simple Syrup – I love using a rosemary syrup because it hints at earthy gin flavors. You could also use a honey simple syrup or even plain simple syrup. We are also using more syrup than normal to balance the tartness of the berries.

Lemon Juice – fresh lemon juice is best

Club Soda – this is how we get the bubbles! You can also use tonic water which is slightly sweeter or a sparkling water.

Garnishes as Desired – a lemon twist or lemon slice, fresh blackberries, and/or herbs such as rosemary or mint.

Homemade simple syrup is very easy to make! Just heat a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar until dissolved and then let it cool.

Making the Mocktail

In a shaker or large glass, combine the fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup with the blackberries.

Muddle the blackberries to release their juices and flavor. You can use a muddler or the back of a spoon for this.

Add a scoop of ice and shake until very cold, approximately 30 seconds.

Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. (Traditionally crushed ice is used).

Top off the drink with the sparkling club soda water.

Garnish as desired with fresh blackberries, slice of lemon, and/or a rosemary sprig.

Alternatively, you can also build this in the same glass you want to serve it in without shaking. But shaking it allows the flavors to fully mix together.

A traditional bramble cocktail uses less simple syrup, but we are adding more here to balance out the tartness of the fresh fruit.
 
I like to use Rosemary Simple Syrup to bring the earthy flavor that gin would traditionally bring.
