Toast the Holidays With A Sparkling Stolichnaya Blueberry Bramble

Martini BarInvented in 1984 by British cocktail impresario Dick Bradsell at Fred’s Club in London, the Bramble is a classic wintertime drink. Made up of gin, crème de mûre (essentially a blackberry liqueur) lemon juice and simple syrup, the Bramble is simple to make and hard to stop imbibing.

To give it a more festive touch, Celebrity Cruises’ mixologists have created a new take on the Bramble — the Sparkling Stolichnaya Blueberry Bramble — to offer on all our ships. The drink is also easy to reproduce at home.


12 blueberries

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

1 oz Stolichnaya Blueberry Vodka

1 oz white cranberry juice

Splash of sparkling wine


In a mixing glass, muddle blueberries and lemon juice. Add the vodka and cranberry juice and shake with ice. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Top with sparkling wine.
