Happy (almost) weekend! If your plans involve entertaining or hanging out with friends, might we recommend ordering (or serving!) our latest cocktail obsession – The Blackberry Bramble. The Bramble is the (happy) result of legendary London-based cocktail guru, Dick Bradsell, who invented to drink in the 1980s. A slight deviation off the Singapore Sling, the creme de mure replacement gives the Bramble an earthy, fresh, and absolutely divine flavor.
With, what seems to be, an everlasting Winter, this libation is sure to have you wishing for blackberry season. Let us know what you think & have one for us!
