Colonsay Cocktails No.6
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.
