Raspberry Gin Bramble

During the past few years, I’ve been having fun exploring different cocktails and figuring out how to add a little spin on them. The most recent cocktail I came up with was this delicious Raspberry Gin Bramble!

If you’ve got extra Chambord on hand, it’s a great addition to a traditional bramble cocktail. It’s one of my new favorite cocktails for spring or summer. It’s so refreshing!

What is a bramble cocktail?

The Bramble cocktail was created in 1984 by a London bartender, Dick Bradsell. It’s based off of a gin sour, but with the addition of crème de mure which is a blackberry liqueur.

It’s got a balance of sweet and tart, while still being perfectly refreshing with it’s combination of dry gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and crème de mure.

What is Chambord?

Chambord is a black raspberry liqueur from France. The ingredients include red and black raspberries, Moroccan citrus peel, honey, Madagascar, and Cognac.

Its fruity and sweet profile make it a great liqueur to add to lots of fruit forward cocktails to make an easy, refreshing cocktail without too much extra effort.

What ingredients do I need to make a Chambord bramble?

It only takes four ingredients to make:

  • Gin
  • Chambord
  • Lemon juice (lime juice could also work!)
  • Simple syrup
  • If you’re feeling fancy, add some fresh fruit like raspberries and blackberries or lemon slices!

Can I make this with other fruits?

For sure! This would be a great drink with blackberries, or even other mixed berries like a few blueberries and strawberries.

Really any sort of red fruit would make a great addition to lighten up the drink.

Are there other types of liqueur I can use?

If a Chambord bramble doesn’t sound like your type, you can make it classic with crème de mure to bring out the blackberry flavors.

Blackberry brandy could also be a great option to bring a fruit-foward liqueur to the cocktail.
