I just love a good, simple summer cocktail, and that’s exactly what this Backyard Bramble is. Of course this cocktail was inspired by Martin Miller’s gin, but it’s also a result of the glorious weather we’ve had in Italy. Not to mention the fabulous workshop attendees and my awesome team who have been helping me trek across Italy for photoshoots. Be sure to follow along on my Instagram for the latest behind the scenes; you’ll never guess what we’re working on!
In the meantime, enjoy this fantastic Backyard Bramble. Mix it up for a crowd and serve it at your next party!
