This Bytes: Gin & Jam Cocktail Recipe


Let's be honest, where would our lives be without Snoop D-O-double-G? How would we know that gin and juice is such a great combination, and that we need to keep our mind on our money and our money on our minds? These are unforgettable lessons (Thank you Snoop Dogg) but we're about to blow that gin and juice off the streets! We call it, gin and JAM! Okay, okay don't get discouraged. We know it might sound...awkward...but believe us, this drink is anything but awkward. It's a little on the sweeter side so if you're a straight up whiskey drinker this might not be the drink to have on the daily but it's definitely worth giving a try.
We tried it with strawberry and apricot jams and they were both very tasty, but the great thing about making this drink is that you can try ANY jam you can think of. The possibilities are endless. Plus, they're so pretty. The colors come out perfect if you're trying to Instagram (guilty). We were definitely surprised with how much we liked it, and we thought since we liked it so much then there must be others just as curious to know what gin and jam tasted like. We think it's a winner! So, roll down the streets, smoke your indo, and sip on your gin and jam because gin and juice was so 1995.
Gin and Jam: 1 tablespoon jam (any jam will do) 2oz gin juice from half a lemon 1oz simple syrup Shake all ingredients together in a chilled cocktail shaker. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish with mint leaves. *Recipe adapted from Popsugar Food
