This week was fridge clean out week in our house – Which means, being creative, and making due with what’s lurking around in our full-to-the-brim fridge. And, in all honesty, I had a pretty successful week:

  • Bacon & Shallot Fried Rice was born from 6 strips of bacon, a half used bag of frozen peas, rice, shallots + eggs.
  • Jerk Pork Tenderloin Salad was created with half a pork tenderloin and a bagged sweet potato & kale salad.
  • The bottom of a jar of strawberry jam, lemonade, and some vodka from the freezer = This amazing Jam Cocktail!

Then I found a jar of fig jam and a jar of mango jam, and I got to thinking… There’s endless possibilities here. I could create about 15 different cocktails tonight…. But that would be dangerous. And it’s Tuesday.

So… I just created those cocktails in my head. Here’s a few cocktail recipe ideas that I came up with:

  • Strawberry jam, lemonade and vodka.
  • Fig jam, apple juice and bourbon.
  • Mango jam, orange juice and rum.

    This is really creative… never would have thought about doing this!! I love champagne and wine jellies… that’s my go-to haha. For this I would probably use raspberry jam.

    What a fun, unique idea. When you think about it, jam totally makes sense to add to a cocktail with the fruit and sugar, but I never would have considered it! This so makes me want another nice warm, sunny day and have this cocktail on the patio! Hopefully soon…

    Great idea, and I love the idea of using a mason jar for a martini shaker. Is there anything they can’t do? 🙂
