The Jammy Fizz is our expanded version of a Blueberry Fizz recipe we found on Liquorland Toast, a New Zealand cocktail blog. It’s a brilliantly simple, delicious idea – just a spoonful of jam and a spritz of lemon transforms any sparkling wine into a festive, fruity sipper.
If you’re using preserves with big chunks of fruit in it, you might want to take a slotted spoon through your preserves-and-lemon mixture before adding to the glass, to remove the largest bits. We don’t, though – we love getting to the bottom of the glass and slurping up boozy bits of fruit!
Make sure you’re using preserves or jam, not jelly. Jelly won’t fully break down when you mix it with lemon juice, and the mixture won’t incorporate into the sparkling wine.
Mix the jam and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Fill a flute glass with sparkling wine, and carefully drop in the jam-and-lemon mixture. Stir very gently with a long spoon to combine.
