Gin New-Fashioned Cocktail Recipe

Summer Jams: Gin New-Fashioned

I'm a bourbon drinker, but manhattans and old-fashioneds just aren't as satisfying in the Summer. If you're looking to switch brown liquor for a clear spirit in the warmer months, the gin new fashioned is a good way to dabble.

I got this recipe from Nolet's Silver Gin, which sent along a bottle of booze and some sour cherry marmalade as part of its Cupboard to Cocktail program. Of course, you could make the drink with any gin, but this silver version (from the makers of Ketel One) is exceptionally verdant, smooth, and just slightly fruity.

I like the idea of using marmalades and jams in cocktails, because you can buy the ingredient and use it for many things. Plus the cherry and citrus combination has a nice Summer vibe.

Get your Summer jams on and make a gin new-fashioned.

This is perfect- I was just gifted a bottle of gin and have been seeking inspiration to get away from the plain ol' G&T. Thanks, Nancy! I can't wait to try this out.
