Jammy Fizz

Jammy Fizz sparkling cocktail with fruit jam, lemon juice, and sparkling wine

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.

Ingredients

Instructions

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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
