When I was a youth back in Marin County, California, my family and I used to go to a nearby creek and pick Blackberries from the bushes in late Aug – early Sept. Every year, I think about those hilarious times of fumbling through the brambles, trying not to get too many cuts, and gathering as many berries as we could hold. Then we’d take our treasured fruit back to my mom, who would cook them into a cobbler. (Wow, I sound really provençal right now.)
Anyone up for a late season Blackberry Bramble? Yes? Not just any Bramble though, a Rum Bramble in a Mule cup!
I got this nice Mule cup from my friend Drinks and Ink at my birthday, thanks dude!
Blackberry Rum Bramble
- 2 oz Denizen Aged White Rum
- 3/4 Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Cinnamon Bark syrup
- 7-8 Blackberries
- 2 dashes Angostura Bitters (optional)
- Garnish: Lemon Peel
Combine Blackberries, Lemon juice, and Cinnamon Bark syrup and muddle. Add Rum and shake over cracked ice. Dirty pour contents of shaker into Mule cup.
Scrumptuousness in a mug y’all. Cheers!
