Our organic blackberries come from Holland Farms near Canning in the Annapolis Valley. They are dark and delicious and on their own make a delightful liqueur. Last fall we decided that combining gin and blackberry might be a match made in heaven and we weren’t wrong! The result is our newest invention – sort of a Nova Scotian version of Sloe Gin perhaps? This Gin Sour recipe was created for us by the very talented Anne Marie Bungay-Larose, bartender and creative mixologist from the famed Halifax dining establishment “The Carlton”.
- 1 egg white
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 3/4 oz simple syrup (equal parts water and white sugar)
- 2 oz Ironworks Gin Noir
Shake hard and strain into a Martini or Coupe glass.
Garnish with a few drops of Ironworks Haskap liqueur if desired.
