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
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.
Once the sugar has dissolved and the liquid is clear, take the pan off the heat and leave to cool.
Pour 15ml/1 tablespoon of the cooled sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker with the gin and lemon juice. Shake vigorously to combine everything.
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.
Drizzle the crème de mûre over the top of the drink, creating a lovely bleeding effect in the glass. Garnish with the fresh blackberry.
