  • ½ cup (120ml) water
  • ½ cup (100g) sugar
  • ¼ cup (40g) fresh blackberries
  • 1 ounce (30ml) Gin
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) fresh Lemon juice
  • 2 ounces (60ml) Prosecco (or other favorite bubbly)


  • fresh blackberries and lemon rind for garnish


To begin, make a blackberry simple syrup by adding the water, sugar and blackberries in a small pan. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring and then strain into a mason jar or other lidded heat-proof container. Set aside until cool and then store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

When ready to drink, fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add 2 tablespoons of the blackberry simple syrup, 1 ounce gin, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice and then shake vigorously. Strain into a cocktail glass and then top with about 2 ounces of bubbly. 

Garnish with a lemon rind and fresh blackberry if desired.
