The aroma of homemade blackberry syrup will fill your kitchen with the smell of ripe berried autumn when you are making it and reward you with a luscious deep jewel purple syrup at the end. The sight of blackberries bobbing about in a pan of gently simmering water lifts my heart and my senses and for me, is the epitome of autumn.
The Aviation cocktail is a pre-prohibition variation on a gin sour. Typically floral and somewhat lilac in colour the Aviation is not to everyone’s taste. In fact, it seems to have quite a polarising effect on the cocktail community with the Likers and the Haters quite vocal on social media.
Lime syrup is a must-have ingredient in your fridge for cocktails and mocktails. It adds a slight almost spicy sourness to cocktails and is also great as a dash of sweetness in a G&T. You can buy readymade but homemade is best. It is also so easy to make and keeps for weeks in your fridge that it makes sense to make to own. Your homemade syrup will never be clear unless you are super patient enough to strain it through a coffee filter and even then it may be a little cloudy. But neither will it be suspiciously bright green like some of the commercial ones.
