Monthly Moonshine #3

You don't have to be more than 5 minutes into a brisk countryside walk to find a bramble bush bursting with blackberries at this time of year. They're sharp, sweet and juicy and the perfect addition to autumn recipes. Some eat them as they come, some add them to an apple crumble, we add a glug of gin, a drop of syrup and a slash of lemon juice to create a Blackberry Bramble cocktail. 

Ingredients 60ml Dry Gin 30ml Blackberry Liquor (optional) 30ml simple syrup/maple/agave 45ml lemon juice Ginger Beer or Soda Instructions - Serves 3-4 - In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries with gin, blackberry liquor, lemon juice and syrup until broken up and they release their juice. Double strain, using a fine mesh strainer, to remove the seeds.  Fill 3-4 glasses with ice, pour the blackberry-gin mix and top with soda or ginger beer. Garnish with a blackberry and lemon zest, if desired.
