The Mulberry Bramble Cocktail is full of amazing flavours and stunning colours. Made with mulberry gin, lemon juice, and blackberry liqueur, it’s really easy to mix, making it the perfect cocktail to serve at any occasion. It is fully of early autumn flavours, but can be enjoyed any time of year.
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!
This Baileys Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini is THE fall cocktail to serve this Halloween and Thanksgiving. It’s creamy and delicious, full of fall flavours, so easy to mix up, and the espresso will give you the boost to keep celebrating all day and night! Bonus: it tastes just like a Pumpkin Spice Latte… but with booze! How can you say no to that?!
It’s October! Autumn is in full swing and with Halloween and Thanksgiving just around the corner, followed shortly by Christmas, it’s the most delicious time of year! This is why it’s my favourite time of year, it can get pretty crazy, especially when you’re a food blogger, but there’s so many wonderful festive flavours to taste and experiment with, how can you not have fun?! And I had soooo much fun coming up with this Baileys Pumpkin Spice Espresso Martini Cocktail, especially the taste testing part! It’s so delicious, and goes down way too easily. It’s basically like drinking a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte, but better and with booze! I’m totally in love.

I know a lot of you are probably still lamenting the end of summer, but not me! Summer has it’s advantages; lovely fresh produce, long days, sunshine, and cocktails galore to name a few. But, as much as I love sunshine, I hate the heat. It does not agree with me! The sun may be hibernating more and more as we delve into autumn and the days are already getting much shorter but in return we get crisp air with cooler days and colourful foliage. And we may start saying goodbye to the strawberries and peaches of summer, but we can say a big hello to the blackberries and figs of autumn, and not to mention the absolutely gorgeous, warm spices that dominate this season. Yes, I think it’s safe to say that I am big fan out autumn. Especially because it means I can give my favourite summer cocktail an amazing autumn makeover with this delicious Blackberry, Cinnamon and Fig Margarita! Yum!
