Dick Bradsell created this classic in Soho in the 1980's on the pursuit of a genuinely British drink. The sweetness of the sugar and blackberry, with sour lemon, proved a popular combination when mixed with gin. Today it's one of the most famous cocktails in the world. Affectionally named 'The Cocktail King,' we're grateful to Dick Bradsell who also gave us the espresso martini.
