Bombay Sapphire Bramble Created especially for Bombay by world famous bartender Dick Bradsell, the Bramble is considered to be one of the most significant gin cocktails of the last 50 years. A fantastically fruity cocktail with a delicately balanced flavour. Ingredients 1 ½ oz Bombay Sapphire ⅔ oz fresh lemon juice 1tsp caster sugar ½ oz berry liqueur – Creme de Mure / Chambord / Creme de Cassis 1 blackberry Wedge of fresh lemon Crushed ice Method Add the Bombay Sapphire, lemon juice and caster sugar to a short glass / tumbler and stir. Fill the glass with crushed ice. Drizzle the berry liqueur over the top and watch it 'marble' through the drink. Top up with more crushed ice and garnish with 1 blackberry and a wedge of fresh lemon. A modern classic.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 94 points – Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2011 Finalist. Wonderfully fresh aromatics with clean citrus notes. The texture is supple while vibrant with well proportioned botanicals and citrus emerging on the finish. (Mar 2011) Wine Enthusiast 85 points – Nosing passes find a peppery bouquet of zesty, mildly citrusy scents of juniper, cedar, Christmas tree sap, coriander and orris root. Entry is silky, smooth, moderately sweet and keenly pine-like; the midpalate is elegant, floral, and sweet with a touch of sap. Finishes clean, citrusy and spicy. Better than its sibling, Bombay Sapphire. (Feb 2009)
