#DOTW: Bramble

Mother’s Day is in the works, and I hope all of you have prepared accordingly! Flowers, gifts, dinners, whatever she loves, do it, she does whatever you love all the rest of the year. Wanna get her a little tipsy? Make it a sweet one. I chose Hennessy for this special occasion, because it’s classy and time honored, like most moms are. Most of the time, Hennessy and all other good cognacs are consumed straight up in a snifter, but mixing it can be so fun as well. This one is fruity and delicious, and the women in your life are sure to love it!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 1/2 oz Hennessy
  • 1/2 oz Chambord
  • 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 simple syrup
  • 5 fresh blackberries

Add 2 blackberries to the bottom of a cocktail glass and muddle them. Add ice, Hennessy, Chambord, lemon juice and simple syrup. Stir well. Garnish with 3 black berries.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
