The Bombay Bramble…An Elite Gin Cocktail

 The Bombay Bramble

A modern classic. “Created especially for Bombay by world famous bartender Dick Bradsell, the Bramble is considered to be one of the most significant gin cocktails of the last 50 years. A fantastically fruity cocktail with a delicately balanced flavour. In the 1990s, Dick Bradsell included the Bombay Bramble on the menu at Alfred’s, Dick’s Bar at the Atlantic, and The Lonsdale – some of the most influential London cocktail bars you could hope to be sipping a drink in. Tasting notes:The citrus from the lemon juice and garnish bring out the zesty notes that the lemon peel and coriander botanicals deliver so fruitily to our gin.” Taken from the Bombay Sapphire website.

The Classic Cocktails (especially Gin Cocktails) are back and cooler than ever!  Mixology has really taken over the bar scene and there is no sign of it slowing down.  To quote Tony Conigliaro, a famed mixologist and owner of the 69 Colebrooke Row in London “We’re serving more gin martinis than I’ve ever seen. Ever. People are demanding a higher level and a more refined style of drink.”  With people still being a little nervous to jump on the Gin wagon I chose a Gin cocktail that is more approachable due to it being very fruit forward.  Hope you enjoy the video!
