Blackberry Gin Fizz

Happy Friday!

You've made it to the end of the week... so why not celebrate with us at House Curious and make one of our favourite tipples. This month we're serving Blackberry Gin Fizz! It's so refreshing and your guest will be suitably impressed. Blackberries are in season, so if you're game, go out and forage for your own blackberries.



3 Fresh blackberries

50ml Gin - we love Silent Pool Gin 

Lime juice

1 Teaspoon of sugar

 Club soda


Blackberries and thyme to garnish


This recipe is based on making one cocktail. The more blackberries you add the darker the colour of the base. Three blackberries will give you a beautiful purple colour. If you use more berries it will be darker and more red in colour.

Place 3 blackberries in a glass with sugar. Muddle together until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the juice of 1 or 2 limes. Stir to combine.

Add ice cubes followed by 50ml of gin.

Slowly pour in the the club soda.

Garnish the cocktail with fresh blackberries, edible flowers and a sprig of thyme. Stir and enjoy!

Happy weekend x
