Bourbon Jam

Bourbon Jam cocktail with bourbon, lemon juice, blackberry jam, and honey

We love creative drinks that bring velvety, jammy fruit preserves into the mix, and the Bourbon Jam from the Bourbon & Banter website is a case study in jam’s ability to elevate a simple sour.

The original recipe calls for blackberry jam. We’ve tried it with just about every kind of fruit preserve on the market, and each one sings in the Bourbon Jam. Peach and strawberry preserves are our current favorites, but this drink is our first go-to when our Jam of the Month Club box arrives on our doorstep.

We double-strain this drink to remove seed bits and fruit chunks and whatnot – it’s up to you if you want to dirty up your wire mesh strainer.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
