Strawberry Kiss Cocktail — That's My Jam!


Have you ever had a jam cocktail? We love mixing cocktails with some jam shaken in. They add some sweetness, a little depth and there's something fun about using a typical breakfast condiment in our cocktails. With Valentine's Day coming up, we thought we'd mix up something a little sweet and strong, perfect for saying cheers to your friends, a significant other, or that handsome stranger across the room (it is Valentine's Day after all).

Strawberry Kiss Cocktail — That's My Jam!

(makes 1 cocktail)
2 ounces whiskey
1-2 ounces* strawberry jam (we used Laura Ann's Strawberry Vanilla Bean)
1/2 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
5 ounces club soda or sparkling water

* Feel free to add more or less jam depending on how sweet of a Cocktail you prefer. You can also play around with the amount of simple syrup if desired.

Remember 1 ounce is equal to 1 typical shot glass.

In a cocktail shaker or mason jar fitted with a lid, shake the jam and whiskey until the jam is incorporated. Pour in the lemon juice and simple syrup and shake to combine. Pour into an ice-filled glass and top with club soda or sparkling water. Garnish with a lemon wedge if desired. Enjoy!
