Gin Bramble with Fresh Mint
Legend has it that this cocktail, the Gin Bramble, was created in 1984 by British bartender Dick Bradsell at Fred’s Club in London’s Soho. It was inspired by the fresh blackberries he ate as a child on the Isle of Wight. The fresh blueberries and mint make this a refreshing summer cocktail.
Purée 2 cups blackberries, mint leaves, gin, agave, lime juice, and crème de mure in a food processor at least 1 minute; strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher.
Divide bramble among four old-fashioned glasses filled halfway with crushed ice, then top with club soda; garnish with blackberries and mint sprigs.
