By the time you read this, I may have already had a blackberry bramble from State Street on my trip to Sarasota. I'll be in town for my grandma's 90th birthday and although she doesn't drink, I plan to make a stop at State Street to toast to her health and to more time with this crazy woman!
I think it was 2 years ago that I met Punit and some other friends at this new-to-me bar in Sarasota and had my first taste of the bramble. Now, Seattle is a cocktail city but Sarasota is definitely hot on our heels and I have had some very tasty drinks in the SRQ. I was really into the drink, not too sweet plus it is made with gin! It's a winner. I am obviously not the only one that is into the bramble, Wade Tatangelo from Ticket Sarasota describes the drink:
His article has some other recommendations from State Street's food and drink menu you should check out.
I look forward to getting a few brambles during my visit & if you see me at State Street please say hi...or buy me a drink! ;)
