Jam cocktails: also known as a recipe for the happiest cocktail to fuel you all summer long.

Grab a mason jar, your favorite jam and booze, and get ready to shake!

So, we have accumulated quite a few recipes for jam cocktails on this site over the years, haven’t we? I have a whole section on this site dedicated to cocktails made with jam (don’t miss these Fig Jam Rye Whiskey pretty pretty cocktails!), and I thought it was time to compile them all into one post.

It’s time friends: you’re ready to be set free into the world of making your own jam cocktails. I want to inspire you to grab your favorite jam, your favorite booze, and shake up something you like!

These drinks are completely customizable, and you can make them a different way each time (which is what we do in our house).

Cocktails in jars made with jam. Jam cocktails are customizable.

I remember the first time I had jam in a cocktail. Five years ago (or so), I was in Nashville, and ordered a drink called a peach cobbler. It was shaken with peach jam, and I remember thinking ‘wow! So much easier than simple syrup!’ I’ve been a convert ever since.

The benefits of jam over simple syrup in a cocktail are more than just a time-saving step. Jam is sweet like simple syrup, but it has an extra boost of being fruity! Plus, if you use really good jam, it has a thickness to it that makes the best cocktail! Watch me pour the cocktails in this video and you’ll see what I mean. (The video lives at the top of this post in mobile, and on the side of the page on Desktop).

In the video, you can see I paired raspberry jam with rum (hi, rum, it’s been a while. did you miss me too?),  apricot jam with vodka (probably my favorite combo), and blackberry jam with gin (I’m a gin girl, always have been & always will be).

So, tell me: which jam would you use? And which alcohol would pair it with?
