Lets be honest, where would our lives be without Snoop D-O-double-G? How would we know that gin and juice was such a great combination, and that we need to keep our mind on our money and our money on our minds? These are unforgettable lessons (Thank you Snoop Dogg) but we're about to blow that gin and juice off the streets! We call it, gin and JAM! Ok ok don't get discouraged. We know it might sound...awkward but believe us this drink is anything but awkward. Its a little on the sweeter side so if your a straight up whiskey drinker this might not be the drink to have on the daily but its definitely worth giving a try. We tried it with strawberry and apricot jam and they were both very tasty, but the great thing about making this drink is that you can try ANY jam you can think of. The possibilities are endless. Plus, their so pretty. The colors come out perfect if your trying to instagram (guilty). We were definitely surprised on how much we liked it, and we thought since we liked it so much then there must be others just as curious to know what gin and jam tasted like. We think its a winner! So, roll down the streets, smoke your indo, and sip on your gin and jam because gin and juice was so 1995.
Gin and Jam:
1 tablespoon jam (any jam will do)
juice from half a lemon
1oz simple syrup
Shake all ingredients together in a chilled cocktail shaker. Strain into a rocks glass and garnish with mint leaves.
