Blackberry Bramble Recipe

This weekend we went to a Speak Easy! Have you ever been? It's basically a 20s themed joint where girls dress up as flappers and transport back to the Golden Age. And let me tell you....the drinks?? Divine. Classy. Delicious. We were instantly inspired to try our hand at recreating these tasty treats. The Blackberry Bramble was a classic drink in the Prohibition Era. Ready?
What you'll need:

1 Shot of gin
1 Lime
7 Blackberries
1 1/2 Simple syrup
4-6 oz Club soda
Crushed ice

Muddle the blackberries and add to serving glass. Add crushed ice, juice of the lime, gin, and simple syrup. Then top it off with the club soda. I like to add more muddled blackberries at the top too. :] Enjoy!


  1. This looks delicious and is definitely a recipe I will be trying out when we get some form of sunshine over here in England!!

    I have added your button to my blog, and will now be a regular reader of your posts :)

    Thank you xx

  2. Adorable--my friends went to one in SF where you have to dress up and use a secret password to get in. No idea what they drank though.

  3. I'm not a big gin fan, but I might have to try this!

    1. I've never drank gin....ever! But I love this drink! xo

  4. That looks like the perfect Summer cocktail. I'm going to try this for sure!


  5. I haven't been to a Speak Easy, but it sounds fabulous!

  6. A great recipe, but you should know that the Bramble was invented in London in 1984, it isn't a prohibition drink at all ;-)
