This is another great Gin cocktail, perfect for a warm spring and summer days. Like the Clover Club above, this is another play on the same great three ingredients: gin, lemon & raspberries.
For our Raspberry Ramble, we recommend using Confluence’s Manchester Dry Gin, they make theirs with ingredients sourced in Alberta to create a dry gin that has the essence of rose petal, fruity tartness of Saskatoon berry, and a smooth cucumber finish.
For this cocktail if you don’t have Creme De Cassis, you can add another raspberry or two to bump up the flavour. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to use blackberries in lieu of raspberries too.
How to Make
Firstly, smoke your glass.
Combine the gin, lemon juice, and 3/4 of the simple syrup in a Boston Shaker. Shake with ice and strain into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice. In the empty shaker add the raspberries, the remaining syrup and a dash of Creme De Cassis. Gently muddle, and pour on top of the drink.
