This Is the Easiest Blackberry Bramble Recipe Ever Created

Welcome to A Drink You Can Actually Make, Eater's first ever recipe series dedicated to simple cocktails from new bars across the country.

Napa Valley's boutique hotel Solage has more going on than simply beautiful grounds. Onsite the property boats a New American Michelin-starred restaurant, Solbar, and there sommelier/beverage director Scott Turnbull heads up all drink-related engagements, from wine to fruit and vegetable-centered libations. Which serve as the perfect relief to the hot Valley sun.

Below, Turnbull shares an easy riff on the classic bramble.

Calistoga Bramble
Makes 1

1 1/2 ounces gin, such as Bombay
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
1 heaping bar spoon blackberry preserves

Combine gin, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake then strain into a double rocks glass filled with ice. Spoon blackberry preserve on top and allow to bleed into cocktail. Serve.
