Notes:The legendary Bramble was designed by Dick Bradsell in the mid 1980's and found of the menu at Frederick's club in Soho, London using Bombay Sapphire. I'm sure he's still often asked for them at El Camino where he is currently tending bar.
This cocktail draws out the lemon peel botanical in Bombay Sapphire. Also the Grains of Paradise and Cubeb Berries complement the bramble family flavouring - Creme de Mure (blackberry liqueur). The Bramble displays fantastic fruity and rooty flavours and is refined and delicately balanced.
Why? Who doesn't love this great cocktail by a mixology legend.
