We are huge fans of Plum Tree Jam, so when we heard they were coming out with a special spiced cranberry jam for the holidays, we immediately got our hands on some for cocktail r&d. Jam is a great ingredient for cocktails. It adds nice viscosity and depth of flavor, while offering another sweetening agent as well. You could also swap out the jam for some TG cranberry sauce if you're feeling adventurous!
This recipe was created by Bull in China co-founder Daniel Osborne. You'll definitely want to shake up a batch of these while entertaining over Thanksgiving. Or, even better, bring the ingredients and be the most popular guest at the party! We even put together a special Shaken Cocktail Set together with Plum Tree Spiced Cranberry Jam to make it easy.
