Invented by the infamous Dick Bradsell (who is also the inventor of the Espresso Martini) in the 1980s at Fred’s Club in the Soho neighborhood of London, the Bramble is a cocktail that every bartender should know how to make. Essentially it is a gin sour with the addition of a blackberry liqueur known as crème de mure.
The Bramble is an amazingly tasty cocktail as is, but the play on flavors also invites bartenders to toy with the ingredients, adding other fruits besides blackberries for example.
