Blackberries are part of the berry family that is sweet when ripe but a bit sour or bitter. 

You may notice it being used in many dessert recipes but perhaps not so much in cocktail drinks.

We’ll change that today!

This list will show you how blackberries do wonders when added to cocktails, how it changes the flavor, and how it adds a stunning look to your famous cocktail mixes.

Mojito lovers will appreciate blackberry cocktail recipe #6!

So if you’re up for a unique taste in your cocktail, this is the right list to explore.

The classic Bramble became a hit in the ’80s, with dry gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and Crème de Mûre as its main ingredients.

Instead of using Crème de Mûre, a blackberry liquor, this variation uses muddled fresh blackberry combined with gin and lemon juice to get that natural tangy, herbal, and sweet flavors.

Top with ice and soda water or ginger brew to add some fizzing effect to your drink.

Sprigs of mint would be an excellent addition to complete the look.

It is the famous Tom Collins with the blackberry variation.

Best to use the Old Tom gin, which is softer and sweeter than the London Dry gin.

It is usually clear in color, but when fresh blackberry is added, it turns into this gorgeous dark purple color.

Its sweet, tangy, and minty taste combined in one will be a total hit with any crowd.

Adding bourbon whiskey gives this cocktail light and refreshing taste, especially if you choose the one that has properly aged. 

Sitting by the fireplace or patio with a glass of this beauty is nothing but a delicious treat for yourself after a long day.

Smashing or muddling the ingredients is the best way to squeeze out those natural flavors and juices.

It’s what makes Smash Cocktails more enjoyable because the flavors and the sweetness are natural, just like this cocktail.
