Blackberry Fizz

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.

-Blackberry Jam

-Bourbon

-Sparkling Water

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!
