3-Ingredient Happy Hour: A Sidecar Named Desire
Happy weekend, everyone, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink columnÖ
Though America invented cocktails, England invented the bramble, and the world was the better for it. The drink is usually made with gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and blackberry liqueur, which is fine, but itís too many ingredients. Also, I didnít want to buy another bottle of liqueur, so I reached for a jar of jam, and omitted the syrup entirely. (Donít worry, I upped the gin to compensate for the lack of liqueur.) To make one yourself, you will need:
2 1/2 ounces of gin
1 ounce lemon juice
3 tablespoons really great blackberry jam
Combine everything in a shaker filled with ice and shake until it gets too cold to hold. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a lowball filled with crushed ice, and garnish with a strip or lemon zest, or a blackberry if you have one lying around.
