Hudson Valley Bramble


Inspired by the purity of the Harvest Spirits Core Black Raspberry Vodka, Culinary Institute of America Professor Douglass Miller offers the Hudson Valley Bramble. “The idea was to have a local cocktail,” he says. “I also wanted a cocktail that the consumer can adjust based on the different berry seasons in the Hudson Valley—later in the summer, you can create the same drink with tree-ripened peaches or nectarines. You can style the drink however you like—if you want a little less sweetness, decrease the amount of syrup.”

Serves 1


  • 2 ounces Core Black Raspberry Vodka
  • 3/4 ounce Drink More Good Ginger Syrup
  • 4 Hudson Valley strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries or blackberries
  • dash of Tuthilltown Spirits “Bitter Frost” Basement Bitters


  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the berries.
  2. Add the ginger syrup, vodka, bitters and ice.
