Madam’s Jams and Preserves

Madam’s Jams and Preserves is a secret off-menu cocktail at New York City’s Madam Geneva, a speakeasy accessible only through a secret door in another restaurant. Mysterious!

It’s a simple drink, but brilliant. The jam is served in a spoon rested atop the drink, allowing imbibers to choose their own sweetness level. Dip the spoon in briefly for a fruity twist on a Gin Sour, or stir it in until the spoon is clean for a luscious, rich drink with the flavors of whatever jam you choose.

As with all drinks, be sure to use jam or preserves, not jelly! Jelly won’t break down in the drink, and will leave unappetizing chunks floating in the glass.



Shake all ingredients (except the jam) with ice. Strain into an ice-filled short glass, and rest a jam-filled spoon on top of the glass.

Game Changer

This is a game changer. When you're at the liquor store, thinking, "Yeah, ok fine what does Ancho Reyes liquor get me?" you open the app, look up Chile liquor and see that it gets you like 11 new cocktails. This is addictive, and indeed worth the price. We're having a blast under quarantine. While some of the ingredients are kind of anonymous, the icons look like the Campari bottle, and the descriptions often tell you if Campari will work or if you need Aperol. If you <3 cocktails, get this.
