Rosemary Infused Bramble

A good bramble is a timeless cocktail classic, and is a simple enough recipe to remember and used time and time again. This take on a classic bramble is infused with homemade rosemary syrup to give a herbaceous wintery edge. You can vary the amount of lemon added depending on personal preference. (for me the more sour the better!)

Method

In a shaker add 50ml of gin and the juice of 1 lemon (can be varied to taste but I find one is the perfect balance of sweet to sour) and 25ml of rosemary syrup.

Fill shaker with ice and shake vigorously for around 15 seconds

Fill a tumbler glass with crushed ice and pour contents of shaker into the glass

It should leave around a cm of space below the rim of the glass

Top with cassis and garnish with a rosemary sprig and blackberries


For the syrup

Add half water and half sugar to a container (I used around 100ml of water) add a couple of rosemary sprigs and shake until sugar is dissolved and to further infuse the rosemary. This can be kept in the fridge for around a week once made.
