Blueberry Gin Gimlet Recipe

Summer Jams: Blueberry Gimlet

Get in on this gimlet action. Today's Summer jam is smooth and mellow, with just a bit of zing. Normally, I find gimlets too tart, but shaken with a scoop of blueberry preserves, this version of the classic gin and lime cocktail offers a deep sweetness to cut the acidity.

Since it's sweetened with fruit preserves instead of sugar, this cocktail still has a kick, and straining the ingredients keeps it light on the tongue, even with its dark color.

Like the gin new fashioned, this recipe came from Nolet's along with the other ingredients, but if you can't find these delicious blueberry lime preserves, any blueberry jam will do. Get the recipe.
