I’m lucky enough to have a mother-in-law that makes her own blackberry jam every year. I hold this jam very close to my heart and love slathering it on buttery toast and, yes, even making the occasional pb&j. And obviously I’ve been looking for more and more ways to enjoy this perfect present!
That’s where a jam cocktail comes in. Jam adds the perfect sweetness and acidity to classic cocktails (think orange marmalade in an Old Fashioned or raspberry jam in a Tom Collins) and is easy to pair with your liquor of choice to make an endless amount of tasty combinations. For me, that choice is always bourbon.
Combine a heaping tablespoon of jam to about 2 ounces of bourbon and stir until the jam is dissolved. Top off with sparkling water and lots of ice. It really doesn’t get easier (or more delicious) than that! Enjoy!

Beautiful! I had something like this in a bar in London recently and I’m trying to recreate it!
