Handcrafted Blackberry Gin Cocktail
Skip the tonic and reach for the blackberry preserves instead. Blackberries - both fresh and from concentrate - have long been a go-to favorite for liquor connoisseurs.
In this recipe, gin and lemon play with the honeyed taste of ripe blackberries to create a delightful aroma that's easy to get lost in, particularly on a hot summer day.
If the highly botanical flavors of gin aren't your preferred taste, try blackberries together with Irish whiskey, a touch of lime juice and sparkling soda water to create a smooth and refreshing cocktail anytime.
Use bourbon, orange liqueur and lemon juice combined with blackberries for a modern take on the classic Sidecar. Or simply create a fruity vodka martini using your preferred vodka or flavored vodka.
Pour gin in shaker, add lemon juice and blackberry fruit preserve, shake and then pour into a glass with ice.
Garnish with fresh blackberries and lemon
Serve and enjoy. Cheers!
