|Sparkling Jam Cocktail via Eat Boutique|
Cocktails get made with all kinds of fruits and sweeteners, so why not jam? You'd put juice, simple syrup, or fruit puree in a drink without thinking about it. Jam is just a combination of those things.
One jam cocktail that's getting a lot of action is from Madam Geneva in New York. In this summery version, the Bleeker Street gin bar mixes blueberry jam with gin to create a refreshing cooler. Check out Nerve for the recipe and an interview with the bar manager.
Closer to home, Maggie from Eat Boutique created a simple sparkler with jam and champagne, perfect for a celebration!
I'm already thinking of new combinations... how about lime marmalade and tequila? Habanero jelly in a Bloody Mary? Or even just a bit of Concord grape jam stirred into some soda water. The possibilities are endless!
Have you ever had a jam cocktail?
