Recipe Notes

As we already mentioned before, you can use probably use any blackberry liqueur you wish, but we strongly recommend Crème de Mure from Massenez. We tried it last month, and we fell in love with it because it just gives you a burst of blackberry flavor that the fresh fruit and other cheap liqueurs can simply not match in cocktails. Oh and don’t let the price of around $28 scare you – this is a very potent liqueur and only a small dose is needed to flavor a cocktail. A bottle will last you quite some time  to “blackberry” your drinks. And it goes with everything - vodka, gin, bourbon, whatever you like, this is a must-have for the liquor cabinet.
