Wild Blackberry Kiss Cocktail

Wild Blackberry Kiss Cocktail

Well, as Helen won our last inter office cocktail competition with her Lavender and Lemon Cooler; we thought we would make the most of her whilst her boastful head still fits in the office.  We sent her to make the most of the autumn gathering / scrumping season whilst it is at it’s most “fruitful’! (only from hedgerow’s my we add and not neighbors garden’s as the true definition suggests!).

I have come up with this beauty; making use of my favorite berry the Wild British Blackberry, don’t go to your local supermarket, get yourself out for a walk and you will be sure to find this British berry. 

The Wild Blackberry Kiss Recipe

  • 10 juicy, ripe blackberries (preferably picked from the hedge)
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 1 ½ cups white rum
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 3 ice cubes
  • A touch of soda

In a strong glass, place the blackberries, mint leaves sugar and ice and using a muddler pound the ingrediants together.  Then add the rum and stir.  Top up with soda to taste.

Simply really. 

Enjoy. 

Helen
