Blackberry Gin Fizz

This Blackberry Gin Fizz is a brambly vanilla delight that has a bright and refreshing perk from Earl Grey tea, lemon, mint, and fizzy soda water.
Servings 1
Prep Time 5 mins

Ingredients

  • 10 mint leaves
  • 3 blackberries
  • 1/2 inch thick lemon slice
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest Sugar with Cardamon*
  • 2 ounces gin*
  • 1 ounce Blackberry Shrub with Vanilla and Earl Grey*
  • club soda to top or taste I used Fever-Tree Club Soda

Instructions

  • Place a handful or two of ice cubes in a tall high ball glass.
  • In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint, blackberries, lemon slice, and sugar until the mint is very aromatic and slightly bruised looking, the sugar is mostly dissolved, and the blackberries and lemon have been flattened and released their juices.
  • Add the gin and shrub and top with ice.
  • Shake well, until the shaker is very cold and is sweating.
  • Strain into the prepared high ball glass, top with club soda, and garnish. You can garnish with a lemon wedge or slice, mint leaves, blackberries, and edible flowers if desired.

Notes

Neat Version: Double strain into a chilled coupe or rocks glass and garnish
This Blackberry Gin Fizz will taste different depending on what gin you use. Each distillery adds different botanicals, so the same cocktail made with another gin will result in its own distinctive version.
