Our friend @jfdesfosses’s take on the Bramble is topped with a juniper, rose, and blackberry foam to bring this classic to the next level!
In a cocktail shaker, add Empress 1908 Indigo Gin, lemon juice, elderflower liqueur, and simple syrup. Fill with ice, and shake for about 10 seconds until chilled. Fine strain into a double rocks glass with a large ice cube. Top with juniper, rose & blackberry foam. Enjoy!
*To make the foam, start by making the Juniper & Rose Blackberry Liqueur by adding 400g blackberries, 375ml red wine, 375ml vodka, 350g sugar, 7g crushed dried juniper berries, and 2 pinches of dried rose petals to a sous-vide bag. Seal and sous-vide for 2 hours at 65˚C. Fine strain and bottle the liqueur.
Blend 150g blackberry liqueur, 115g water, 15g honey, 2g citric acid, ½g xanthan gum, and 1½g methyl cellulose at high speed for 30 seconds. Pour into a cream whipper, close, and charge with NO2. Shake the whipper and charge again, then shake for an additional 10 seconds. Store in the fridge for at least one hour prior to using it. Foam lasts for up to 3 days.
