Colonsay Cocktails No.6

Colonsay Green Credentials

Combining the flavours of Blackberry and Balsamic and putting them up against the herbaceous flavour bomb that is Green Aperitivo. The result is kind of a Bramble base, but with the added acidity and a strong herbal backbone.


30ml Colonsay Gin

22.5ml P31 Green Aperitivo

15ml Lemon Juice

4 blackberries (plus more for garnish)

15ml Colonsay Bramble Liqueur

15ml Creme de Cassis

5ml Balsamic Vinegar

Muddle the bkackberries in the bottom of a rocks glass with the balsamic vinegar. Add the Cassis and Bramble Liqueur then fill with crushed ice. Shake the gin, lemon juice and P31 without ice (top tip – if it’s cold it’s more likely to sink!) then float on top of the dark fruity layer. Garnish with blackberries and a charred lemon wheel.

Let us know what you make of it!?

Huge thanks, once again, to the fabulous Anthony from @cocktails_for_breakfast for the recipe and photos
