Sippin' On Gin & Jam....
This warm weather has me craving gin cocktails. One of our neighbors in the building where I live always makes everyone a delicious jar of plum jam with the plums from the plum tree on the grounds. Such a thoughtful gesture but there is only so much jam I can truly eat ! This is the perfect way to use some of that stuff up !!
Super simple...no bartending school required.
• 2 oz gin
• 1 oz lemon juice
• 1/2 oz simple syrup
• 1 teaspoon raspberry jam
• spoonful of jam for garnish
Add the gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and jam to your mixing glass.
Add ice and shake for 10 seconds.
Strain into a double old fashioned glass over crushed ice.
Top with a spoonful of jam, and stir it in while you sip.
