Colonsay Cocktails No.6 – Green Credentials

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
