Gin and Jam – A Gin Cocktail

A classic combo of gin and jam in this cocktail.



We were down at the opening of the 2015 season of the Omaha Farmer’s Market recently where we had the chance to check out the stand of one of our favorite Omaha restaurants, The Grey Plume.  Grey Plumes’ farmers market stand had a number of great products to try, charcuterie, coffees and various jams.  We tried some of their wild plum jam and immediately Mrs. Nom had an idea that it might be a very nice ingredient to use in a jam cocktail.



Gin and Jam

The jam was sweet with an intense complexity that comes from the tart wild plums, allspice and star anise. Combined with the citrusy herbal notes from the Broker’s Gin, this drink changes as you drink it, with small bits of jam giving a burst of smooth sweetness in each sip. Gin and Jam combine to make a tart yet sweet drink, cheers!
