Muddling!

Muddling. Many cocktails use fresh ingredients such as herbs and fruit, and often, muddling is required. To muddle means to press the ingredients against the side of the glass with a muddler. 

Muddling helps to release the flavors of the fresh ingredients so that they bind with the alcohol better .

This gin cocktail actually muddles blackberries into the simple syrup mix. Making a delicious key syrup for this delightful drink.

You don’t need a muddler, you can use a wooden spoon or some other solid kitchen implement, then muddle away!

Top Tips For This Gin Cocktail Recipe

  • Use a low heat to cook the simple syrup or the mix will go hard.
  • Store your remaining simple syrup in the fridge – lasts a week.
