share a drink? – gin + jam

Gin and Jam Cocktail Recipe | via Honestly Yum

This week’s cocktail is so simple, so fun, and the best shade of pink. A simple mix of gin and, you guessed it, jam, you can most likely make it with what you have on hand. Though it’s definitely a reason to splurge for a fabulous  jam… or better yet, make your own.

The Gin and Jam Cocktail comes from Todd, the Drinks Editor at Honestly Yum, an honestly great blog that I like to frequent for food and drink inspiration. You may remember that I have shared a drink of his before. Thanks, Todd, for this pink and sweet and swirlable cocktail that’s as easy to make as it is to finish.
