Gin and Jam

An old bartender's manual from England inspired the Gin and Jam served at The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park, Fla. Below is the recipe from The Ravenous Pig: Seasons of Florida cookbook. In the spring, we like to use blueberry jam for tanginess and tantalizing color. But, it works just fine with store-bought jams, like strawberry and peach. Orange marmalade is another good choice. The version shown here is mango, perfect for those summer cocktail parties.
