Sipsmith's Cocktail Challenge - Blackberry & Apple Gin Fizz

I have been asked by unearthed® and Sipsmith to participate in a cocktail challenge with Sipsmith gin, a London Dry Gin that is smooth, full of character and explodes with flavour.  To make my original cocktail I need to start with Sipsmith's gin and mine was made with blackberries from my allotment!
 
Sipsmith Blackberry & Apple Fizz

Into a cocktail shaker pour:-

50ml Sipsmiths gin
25ml homemade blackberry gin or blackberry vodka
2 slices of red apple
2 blackberries from the blackberry gin or vodka
Crushed ice

Shake for 30-45 seconds

Add 100ml Appletise or other fizzy apple drink

Strain into a chilled cocktail glass that has been dipped into blackberry juice and sugar

Garnish with one large ice cube with a blackberry inside and a slice of red apple (not peeled)
Serve and enjoy. This recipe made enough for two glasses. I liked the first glass so much I drank them both - Don't tell Mr R!!
I was sent a mini unearthed and Sipsmith Gin starter kit. I was not paid to write any positive things about either of them.  As usual all opinions, recipe and photos are my own.

  2. Don't drink but I do like the idea of making one's own cocktails - especially with fruit from your own patch.
