Hello all! Can you believe it’s February already!? How the hell did that happen?
I am quite excited about today’s post because A: I tested this new non-alcoholic cocktail which tastes super good and, B: I am going to tell you more details about our new workshop happening in Italy this spring! As you can see, it’s all about Italy today.
For those of you who don’t know what a Bramble is, let me tell ya: a Bramble is a British cocktail made out of dry gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and crème de mûre (blackberry liqueur). Since I wanted to do a non-alcoholic version of this, I mixed most of the flavouring agents in the original recipe, and added a few Italian touches such as bitters (making a reference to Campari), sparkling soda (San Pellegrino, pretty Italian, yes? haha), and Juniper berries which add a “gin” touch without the booze – quite an awesome twist! And by the way, I kept the lemon in there but added a touch of rosemary, because, why not going all out with it!
This drink is far from being boring and can be an all-season star, but hey, who am I to stop you if you do want to add some campari or gin.
Cocktails have become one of my favourite things to style lately, so if you want to get some more insight into how to do it yourself, read on and find the full recipe along with some workshop details – a workshop where you can learn how to do this and many other yummy things!
