To make the sugar syrup

  • 100g/3½oz caster sugar
  • 50ml/2fl oz water

To make the cocktail

  • 50ml/2fl oz gin
  • 25ml/1fl oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • handful ice, crushed
  • 15ml/1 tbsp crème de mûre (blackberry
  • 1 fresh blackberry


  1. For the sugar syrup, put the caster sugar in a small non-stick saucepan over a medium heat and pour in the water. Stir and bring to the boil. CAUTION: boiling sugar is extremely hot. Handle very carefully. Use a deep pan to avoid bubbling over.

  2. Once the sugar has dissolved and the liquid is clear, take the pan off the heat and leave to cool.

  3. Pour 15ml/1 tablespoon of the cooled sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with the gin and lemon juice. Shake vigorously to combine everything.

  4. Strain the mixture into a rocks glass over crushed ice using a hawthorne cocktail strainer and a fine mesh strainer. If you don’t have a strainer, any kitchen sieve will work just as well.

  5. Drizzle the crème de mûre over the top of the drink, creating a lovely bleeding effect in the glass. Garnish with the fresh blackberry.
