Oh shit yes.
Blackberry Gin & Tonic
- 6 ripe blackberries, plus 2 more for garnish
- 1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
- 1 ounce simple syrup*
- 1 1/2 ounces gin
- 2 to 3 ounces tonic water
Muddle the blackberries and lime juice in the bottom of a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and add simple syrup and gin. Shake vigorously for about 10 seconds.
Fill a Collins glass with ice. Double-strain into serving glass using a cocktail strainer and mini fine-mesh strainer to prevent the blackberry seeds from going into the glass. Add tonic water and stir gently. Garnish with a few blackberries on a skewer.
*To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

ESTRELLA DAMM INEDIT
The unique beer of Ferran Adria and El Bulli team.
Inedit is the first beer specifically created to accompany food.
It was created by Damm brewmasters and by Ferran Adrià, Juli Soler and El Bulli’s sommeliers’ team.
Inedit is a unique coupage of barley malt and wheat with hop, coriander, orange peel, liquorice, yeast and water.
To deliver the best of Inedit, we suggest keeping it in a wine cooler while it is being served in white wine glasses. It is important not to fill the glass more than half full, so as to appreciate all its virtues.
Gather round with American wines at the feast
- For most of our history, cider and beer would have been the traditional accompaniment to the festive harvest suppers the Thanksgiving meal is intended to recall. It was only in the late 20th century that a new fault line in national values emerged over the question of whether roast turkey and a boiled turnip were better served by a bottle of red or a bottle of white.
