Some time ago, while trying to nail down a recipe for our Basil Bramble, I decided to reach out to Mike Aikman of Edinburgh. I figured who better to ask than the man who named his bar after the cocktail in question. And, to be honest, I'd had his version this past summer and it was mighty tasty.
Bramble's Bramble (a drink invented by Dick Bradsell in the 80s - the 1980s)
-50ml Plymouth Gin
-12.5ml Simple Syrup
-12.5ml Crème de Mûre
Build (the first three ingredients) over crushed ice in a tall glass. Float the crème de mûre over the top. Garnish with a bramble.
