Blackberry & Apple Crumble Bramble

A perfect cocktail for the end of summer and beginning of autumn.

blackberry and apple crumble bramble

  • 8-12 blackberries (depending on the size: wild ones may be smaller than supermarket ones)
  • 1.5 shots gin
  • 3 shots cloudy apple juice
  • 0.5 shot lemon juice
  • 2 dashes vanilla syrup
  • 1 tsp creme de cassis

For the cinnamon sugar:

  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 0.25 tsp ground cinnamon



How to Make The Blackberry & Apple Crumble Bramble

1. Muddle all the blackberries in a jug (or use a pestle and mortar) until they are ground down to a fine pulp with plenty of juice

2. Add the gin, lemon juice, apple juice and vanilla syrup into your cocktail shaker along with several ice cubes.

3. Sieve the blackberries (or spoon them in if you don’t mind the bits!) into the shaker too.

4. Give it all a good shake for about 15 seconds

5. Blend the sugar and cinnamon together on a small plate . Coat the rim of a Collins glass with lemon juice to moisten it and then roll it in the sugar so it coats the rim.

6. Pour the cocktail into the Collins glass, and top up with a teaspoon of creme de cassis.
