Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Crème de mûre – While it won’t actually be a blackberry cocktail if you substitute it, a a great alternative for blackberry liqueur is crème de cassis, or currant liqueur.
  • Gin – This cocktail is traditionally made with gin, but you could substitute vodka or bourbon for a really delicious variation.
  • Lemon juice – This adds flavor and acidity to the drink which balances the sweetness of simple syrup. It could potentially be substituted with lime juice.
  • Simple syrup – you can substitute another liquid sweetener such as agave nectar or demerara syrup. I’ve used rosemary simple syrup for this recipe, but the cocktail is traditionally made with regular unflavored syrup.
