virgin bramble and rosemary spritz


Makes: 6 

Prep: 15 mins, plus cooling 

Cook: 15 mins 

  • 300g fresh (or frozen) blackberries, about 100-150g extra to serve 
  • 60g runny honey 
  • 1 medium orange, pared zest & half the juice 
  • 6 small rosemary sprigs, plus extra to serve 
  • 1.5 litre soda water, to serve 


  •  Put the blackberries, honey, pared orange zest, orange juice & rosemary sprigs in a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer then bubble for 10-15 minutes, stirring & crushing lightly occasionally, until the blackberries have broken completely. 
  • Press firmly through a fine sieve into a bowl, scraping the underside to get as much juice as possible. Discard the pulp & aromatics. Transfer to a jug & cool (you can do this up to 2 days ahead). 
  • To serve, divide the blackberry syrup between glasses (about 2-3 tbsp in each). Fill with ice, top up with soda & stir. Slice remaining orange into half-moons then add to each glass alongside a rosemary sprig & a few fresh blackberries for garnish.
