Elevate Your Afternoon With These Brilliant Gin Berry Cocktails

The season for sunny sessions is finally here, and we couldn’t be more excited. Whether you’ve planned a romantic picnic with someone special or a backyard arvo session with your roommates, you’ll want to make sure your drink of choice is service out of the ordinary.

We recently got our hands on Bombay Bramble, a bold, naturally berry-flavored gin that should fall in love with the nation from the first sip this season.

You don’t have to be a mixologist to create a refreshing cocktail at home. We’ve done the hard work and tried and tested three recipes that are sure to be sure to please you.

Bombay Bramble Spritz

For a creative twist on the iconic traditional serve, the Bombay Bramble Spritz is sure to impress.

Ingredients

  • 30 ml Bombay bramble
  • 10 ml of St Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 20 ml fresh lemon juice
  • 70 ml Capi grapefruit soda
  • 10 ml of agave syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Mint sprigs and grapefruit wedge to garnish

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients except the soda in a cocktail shaker. Shake well before going into a wine glass and filling with ice cubes.
  2. Garnish with soda and finish with a sprig of mint and a grapefruit wedge to garnish.
  3. Tip: A good garnish makes all the difference and can add subtle influences to a drink, so be sure to go all out with the finishing touches.

Clover Club

A fit sip on your next date, the Clover Club is the perfect winger to keep the vibes high and the romance flowing. Impress with your mixologist skills with this easy cocktail maker, sure to find the right spot.

Ingredients

  • 60 ml Bombay bramble
  • 30 ml of fresh lemon juice
  • 20 ml of sugar syrup
  • 1/2 egg white
  • Raspberries and blackberries for garnish

Method

  1. Add all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake first without ice. This makes the egg white soft.
  2. Open the can, add ice cubes and shake vigorously until the shaker is frosted on the outside. Finely filter into a refrigerated cup.
  3. Finally, garnish with a skewer of fresh berries.

Tip: If you don’t have a cocktail shaker at home, a coffee mug or jar of jam and a splash-proof lid works great.
