Blackberry Mint Gimlet

During the warmer months, I love experimenting with cocktails that have fresh summer fruit-like berries. Today I am sharing a summer twist on one of my favorite classic cocktails: the gimlet! Not only have I added fresh blackberries, but I also included Cocktail Essentials Mint Syrup, which added so much flavor to this concoction. I am excited to entertain this summer and make this cocktail for friends without worrying about doing any cocktail prep!

The mint syrup is part of the Master of Mixes Cocktail Essentials line, which offers six must-have bar staples, each a perfect finishing touch for your cocktail… Plus, there’s no need to scramble all over town looking for ingredients because the mint syrup can be found right in the grocery store along with the citrus and blackberries that go in this gimlet recipe. Check out the recipe below:


  • 2 ounces of gin
  • 1 ounce of lime juice
  • 1 ounce (or to taste) of Mint Syrup
  • 5 blackberries


  1. Add blackberries to a shaker and muddle
  2. Add all other ingredients and ice
  3. Shake mixture then strain into serving glass
  4. Garnish with mint sprig
