Bramble Cocktail Recipe

Bramble Cocktail

The Bramble is a cocktail created by Dick Bradsell in 1980s London, England. Best described as a spring cocktail, the Bramble brings together dry gin, lemon juice juice, sugar syrup, Chambord and crushed ice. Bradsell also suggests finishing off the cocktail with some fresh red fruits (such as blackberries, cranberries) and a slice of lemon.


  • 60 ml/ 2 oz. Dry Gin
  • 30 ml/ 1 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 15 ml/ ½ oz. sugar syrup
  • 15 ml/ ½ oz. Chambord


  1. Fill the glass with crushed ice.
  2. Build gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup over.
  3. Stir.
  4. Pour Chambord over in a circular fashion to create marbling effect.
  5. Garnish with two blackberries and lemon slice.


The name of the drink comes from the fact that blackberry bushes are called brambles. In addition to the Espresso Martini, the Bramble is probably the most famous drink of the British bartender Dick Bradsell.
