English Blackberry cocktail – by Will Smith


20ml purée of English blackberries
10ml crème de mûre
100ml Prosecco
Dash gomme syrup
Blackberries to garnish

To make the purée, blend 50ml hand-picked blackberries and strain through a sieve.

To make each drink, add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker full of ice.

Shake for 10 seconds to reach the correct degree of dilution.

Pour the mixture into a tumbler and garnish with two whole blackberries.
