Happy 4th of July! I hope this day finds you all healthy and happy! I’m going to share a little recipe with you that uses my Adams Apple Spicy Blackberry Jam. I’ll admit, the only time I have a margarita is when we go out for Mexican food. I didn’t even have any tequila in my house before trying this. I’m a red wine kinda gal. Maybe a beer sometimes, but in doing some “jam research” it came to my attention that jams can be used in mixed drinks. Who knew? Obviously not me, but all of a sudden I’m an expert. So, here we go!
1 1/2-2 oz tequila
2 oz lime juice
heaping tablespoon of Adams Apple Spicy Blackberry Jam
(Optional) Triple Sec
2 oz lime seltzer (you can use a LaCroix or something similar)
Salt for rim, and lime for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker (or mason jar in my case) with ice and add tequila, lime juice, jam, and triple sec (if desired). Shake for 30 seconds–it will be frothy. Pour into a salt-rimmed glass and top with lime seltzer. Garnish with lime.
Tip: Thin the jam with a few drops of water and heat in the microwave for 15 seconds before adding to the shaker.
