Confession time. We have been dying to figure out how some accounts were so good at having #frosted#berries on their #cocktails. We were downright envious! We figured with the chilly Southern California weather -- okay okay, it's rain not snow, but whatever -- the frost would make a nice fit. Well, take a gander! It took a bit of an accident to discover the trick, but low and behold!

Before you say it, yes, we've been on a bit of a Bitter Bianco kick of late. 😋 Do you blame us? But we digress...
Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass on ice for about 15 seconds. We had a cocktail glass filled with shaved ice waiting and ready to go. We first added .75oz Creme de Mure to the glass -- that's where the dark red comes from -- followed by a slow pour of the stirred mixture. We topped that cocktail off with a bit more shaved ice, which can get messy, and then the B-E-autiful frosted #blackberries. We had to photograph quick, as the frost doesn't last too long. Pressure, pressure!
A beauty! 🌈 But how was it? The taste lives up to the look for sure. Ransom's #botanical gin is such a great match with the Bitter Bianco, and the Maraschino #liqueur steps in to smooth it all out. The first sips are strictly the gin mixture, taking about a third of the way down before the Creme de Mure -- aka Blackberry Liqueur -- comes into play. And what a welcome addition! The upper mixture still has a bit of zing to it, and the Mure is like having your dessert and eating it too. Just wonderful, with the added sweetness further smoothing out the cocktail. We were actually so impressed with this concoction that we tried it with all ingredients simply stirred together. Fantastic, though you do lose the layering. 🤔
We caught a break in the rain 🌧 for the photo, with the clouds opening up for the second shot.
