Mead is a drink also known as ‘honey wine’, made with fermented honey and water. Local meadery Fallentimber also makes a delicious, tangy Haskap berry mead, which is divine in this cocktail.
To create this cocktail, smash the blackberries in one shaker.
Mix the gin, mead, lemon, and simple syrup in another shaker and shake gently.
Pour just a splash of the drink mixture into the blackberry shaker, give it a quick shake and pour it into a cocktail glass.
Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour the remaining drink over it.
