Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 3.11.25 PM

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, and my BFF Oma who was visiting last week.

Backyard Bramble
(or Martin’s Backyard Bramble if you use Martin Miller’s gin) 

You will need:
– 6 oz Blackberries
– Large handful of mint leaves (approx. 12-16 leaves?)
– Juice of half a lemon
– 12 drops or so Meyer lemon bitters
– 4 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
– 12 oz Gin
– mineral water or club soda
To prepare: 
In a pitcher, muddle blackberries, mint, and lemon juice. Add bitters, St. Germain, and gin. Let sit in the fridge for an hour or so. Strain, and serve over ice topped with mineral water.
Serves 6-8 in small tea glasses.
