Riff on Classic Cocktail by TJ Drake
Difficulty Level: Easy+
The classic bramble is made with gin, lemon juice, blackberry liqueur, and simple syrup. A variation of that is a whiskey bramble made with bourbon. We have taken a riff of a riff and made it our own with this cocktail. Our BA Rum finishes very smooth and is a perfect pairing with these tradition ingredients, for a delicious holiday cocktail!
