I love gin & tonic! It's such a wonderful and refreshing treat.  When we recently hosted an event I wanted to make a cocktail that combined gin from our partners at Junipero Gin with jam from our friends at  Bonnie's Jam... and my Jammy Gin & Tonic was born!  It's such a delish drink.. you're going to be drinking it nonstop from now on!

You will need:

Gin - I used Junipero Gin

Tonic

Jam - I used Bonnie's Jam Black & Blue

Lime wedges

Juniper Berries

Ice

  1. Add ice to a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add one spoon of jam for each G&T you're going to make.
  3. Add gin to the shaker according to your taste. See my tip section below for a note on the amount. I usually do a 1:3 ratio between the gin and tonic.
  4. Shake shake shake the gin and jam!
  5. Add ice to a glass and pour in your gin and jam mixture.
  6. Top off with tonic.
  7. Add fresh squeezed lime wedge and some juniper berries.
  8. Stir and enjoy!

TIP:

The ratio for a gin & tonic is totally up to your taste.  Most people use a ratio between 1:3 for a less strong version to 1:1 for a G&T that will knock your socks off!
