101 cocktails that shook the world #3: The Bramble

A drink in the great British tradition of deceptively potent fruit liqueurs, the Bramble was invented in the Nineties by UK star mixologist Dick Bradsell and has since achieved classic status on both sides of the Atlantic. In its original formulation, the drink incorporates creme de mure (blackberry liqueur), the somewhat sweeter sister of creme de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur). Call me Miss Marple, but I've recently been substituting damson gin (Plymouth Gin make a good version), which results in a slightly sharper Bramble.
