Depending on your taste and the sweetness of the jam you're using, you may consider omitting the simple syrup.
- 2 ounces gin or vodka
1 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup
Spoonful of jam (I used Fauchon Paris Framboises Fruits Absolus) for stirring, plus another for garnish
- In a shaker, add jam, gin or vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and several ice cubes. Shake briskly, then strain into a rocks glass half-filled with crushed ice.
- Float a spoonful of jam on top of the ice, and gradually stir it in to taste.
