Flaming Blackberry, Thyme, and Espresso Cocktail
- 1 ½ oz golden or aged rum
- ½ oz espresso
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 1oz blackberry thyme syrup
- Barspoon 151 rum for dramatic finish (If uncomfortable, you can torch a sprig of thyme)
Combine rum, espresso, lemon juice, and syrup in a drink shaker filled with ice.
Shake until well chilled, and strain into coupe glass.
Using a barspoon, carefully float 151 rum on top of cocktail and light.
Douse flame with a saucer before serving. If you are not comfortable with this, you can also garnish with a sprig of torched thyme.
Blackberry Thyme Simple Syrup

- ¼ cup water
- ¾ cup blackberries (fresh or frozen)
- 3 sprigs fresh thyme.
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, and cook until blackberries are completely softened and broken down, stirring occasionally.
