Jam Jar Cocktails

We've been having a practise this week with some Jam Jar cocktails using real Jam and Marmalade. Really easy to make at home and probably adding it to our premium menu. 

A Gin based Jam Jar

  • Add 25ml Chambord liqueur
  • 1 tsp raspberry jam
  • Add 50ml Apple juice
  • Add 12.5ml Lemon juice
  • Add ice

A Whiskey based Jam Jar

  • Add 25ml Whiskey ( Monkey Shoulder)
  • Add 25ml Cointreau (orange liqueur)
  • Add 3 large slice of Orange peel
  • Add 1 tsp raspberry jam or marmalade
  • Add 50ml Apple juice
  • Add 12.5ml Lemon juice
  • Add ice
  • Shake and and strain over fresh ice into a jam jar 

Tips:

  • There should be enough sugar in the liqueurs and jam, but if you want more; add a small amount of sugar 
  • Apple juice is great as a neutral mixer as it adds a fruity taste with very little flavour.
  • Add more lemon juice if you want a more sour drink.
  • Try matching up another spirit, jam and fresh fruit
