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 !!
