Brunch Cocktails: Breakfast Bramble

July 18, 2016

Breakfast Bramble cocktail // Get the recipe on craftandcocktails.coIf you are often too busy to make breakfast (guilty), then I have a drink for you- meet the Breakfast Bramble cocktail! This is like breakfast in a glass, if breakfast included lots of booze! Kidding, you wouldn’t want to down a couple of these before heading to the office/stufio/gym, these areΒ best saved for the weekend πŸ˜‰

The Breakfast Bramble cocktail has jam + greek yogurt (yes yogurt!) Both add a great mouth feel + tart, tangy notes to a traditional bramble. I used greek yogurt for a more sharp tang, but other yogurt would work too making it a bit creamier.

The lovely Amisha ofΒ The Jam Lab recently sent me a few of her handmade jams. One of the jams was an apricot rosemary combo that is so delicious on just about EVERYTHING, but I couldn’t wait to use it in a cocktail.Β If you have not had a jam cocktail before, mixing with gin + citrus is a great place to start, they are a natural pairing!
