I spent last Saturday cleaning out my refrigerator after I read this jam jar cocktail recipe from the Trader Joe’s newsletter I was inspired to try this funny concept of making a cocktail from the fruit spread at the bottom of a jam jar.
I rounded up my almost empty jam jars (fruit spreads) to make a fun summer drink.
On any shelf, I have a half dozen unopened jelly, jam, and fruit spread jars. This is where I share a little fun fact about me.
I love the foodie section at Homegoods. Have you shopped this aisle? It is filled with coffee, spices, olive oils and so much more. It is like a yard sale with air conditioning and packaged food and drink items all conveniently located on one shelf.
STEPS TO MAKE A JAM JAR DRINK
This is super easy to make a refreshing jam jar cocktail from the same jar that brings you a PB&J. Scroll below for Trader Joe’s recipe. I winged mine with what I had on hand and it was morning and it was a little earlier for cocktails.
- Add water to the jam jar.
- Replace the lid and give it a good cocktail shaker type of shake.
- Prep a glass with ice, and pour the liquid of the jam jar into a chilled glass or brunch glasses.
- Add vodka or sparkling water.
- Add a spring of mint, lime, or rosemary to garnish.
