The two contestants, Jerry Thomas and Harry Johnson, both wrote about the Fix, and when Johnson in 1882 adds raspberry syrup to Thomas' recipe from 1862, it pretty much appears like the Bramble as we know from the mid 1980's.
• 6 cl. Old English Gin
• The juice of a quarter of a lemon
• 2 dashes of raspberry syrup
• 1 tablespoon of sugar dissolved in a little water
Instructions: Fill up an old fashioned glass two-thirds full of shaved ice, stir thoroughly, and ornament the top with fruits in season. Pour raspberry syrup on top and serve with a straw.
