What better way to celebrate Poisoned Blackberry Day than with a cocktail that shows off how the blackberry can be both sweet and deliciously tart all at the same time? So raise your glasses for a toast to the poisoned blackberry!
“My berries cluster black and thick
For rich and poor alike to pick.
I’ll tear your dress, and cling, and tease,
And scratch your hand and arms and
I’ll stain your fingers and your face,
And then I’ll laugh at your disgrace.
But when the bramble-jelly’s made,
You’ll find your trouble well repaid.”
- The Song of the Blackberry Queen, written by Cicely Mary Barker
