This fruity, creamy, yet light mocktail was inspired by the modern classic gin cocktail, the Bramble.

Notes

Recipe Hacks and Substitutions
Don't have a bar spoon? One bar spoon = about 1 teaspoon.
Don't have a jigger? 1 oz = 2 tablespoons.
Want to make it a cocktail? Replace the 2 oz water with 2 oz gin or vodka
Don’t have blackberry jam? It’s also spectacular with raspberry or strawberry! Try it with any flavor you like.
Don’t have a lemon? You can sub fresh lime juice, or even fresh grapefruit juice. Just keep in mind that grapefruit juice will be a bit less tart than lemon or lime juice, so you may want to cut back on the jam a bit. Just make sure the use freshly squeezed juice for the best results.
Don’t have plain yogurt? You can definitely use vanilla or other flavored/sweetened yogurts, but they will affect the overall sweet-to-sour ratio of the drink. If using a sweetened yogurt, cut the yogurt back to 1 bar spoon and see how it tastes. If the drink is too still too sweet, you can reduce the jam to 1 bar spoon as well, or you can add more citrus. Start with ½ ounce extra (1 tablespoon) and work your way up from there.
Feeling lazy and don’t want to crush ice? It’s ok. You can just shake the cocktail ingredients with a shaker ¾ full of ice and then strain the liquid over a glass full of fresh cubed ice. The end result will be a bit different and a bit more strongly flavored without the crushed ice, but it will also still be delicious!
