Mulberries are something that have always intrigued me. When we were little we would sing about dancing around a mulberry bush on a “cold and frosty morning”. In the myth of Pyramus and Thisbé, they meet (and later die) under a mulberry tree and that’s where the berries get their colour from (to memorialize their forbidden love or something vindictive and weird like that). So, do they grow on a bush that you dance around, or a tree that you have a violent death under? Who knows! (Probably botanists and people who can be bothered to use google). All I know is that I’d never actually tasted this sweet berry or seen them in real life. So my interest was piqued when I came across Mulberry Gin during a visit to Coughton Court (a National Trust site). I decided to snap up a small  bottle, despite being on a self-imposed ban on  buying any spirits or liqueurs for a month! Totally worth it, because this Mulberry Bramble Cocktail was born from it – and there ain’t nothing wrong with his baby!

If you couldn’t tell from all the recipes on my blog by now, I absolutely love making cocktails and playing with different spirits and flavours. This means I need to keep my bar* as fully stocked as I can, so I don’t limit my creativity. At least that’s what I tell myself when I’m spending a fortune on spirits, bitters, and the like! So, if I can make some of the staples at home with minimal effort and cost, I am SO on it.  This Crème de Mûre, or Blackberry Liqueur, is one of those!

*by bar, I mean a mess of many different bottles, poorly organised in a kitchen cupboard and a wine rack with bottles of gin instead of fine wines!

When I asked my mum what she wanted me to make for Mother’s Day her first answer was shortbread (I’ll be sharing how I obliged with that request very soon) and the second was a cocktail. As my chief taste tester, she’s always very happy when I put mixologist hat on – I mean, who doesn’t love testing new cocktail creations? For her Mother’s Day cocktail I knew I wanted some bright, spring flavours and colours, along with some bubbly – because what’s a celebration without bubbly? Our usual go-to bubbly is Prosecco, because it’s delicious and you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a decent bottle. I went with champagne for this Mother’s Day Raspberry Peach Champagne Cocktail however, because I wanted it to be extra special. However, if like me, your champagne tastes are pretty pricey, you can always substitute with Cava – Champagne’s Spanish cousin, you can get a nice tasting bottle (in my humble, non-sommelier, opinion) for much cheaper than a bottle of champers!
