Strawberry Jam Gin and Tonic

Strawberry Jam Gin and Tonic is my new favourite drink! Adding jam is a quick way of adding a new taste to a classic gin and tonic.

Happy Friday! It’s time for a cocktail and I’ve been making a gorgeous range of G&Ts recently and this happens to be my favourite. Mixing jam into the gin to make a really fruit gin and tonic that can be adapted a million different ways. I’ve used shop bought jams and my own homemade jams too. I’ve found using Whitley Neill gin works really to balance the sweetness while keeping their delicious flavour.

Strawberry Jam Gin and Tonic made with mixing jam in to gin and topping up with gallybird premium tonic water.

I loved seeing the jam and large pieces of strawberries in the glass. You can use chunky or smooth jam in this recipe. It’s just my preference to use chunky to add some extra texture to the finished drink.

How to make Strawberry Jam Gin and Tonic

It sounds like adding jam to gin might be tricky or fiddly but it’s so super easy. It’s now my favourite way to adding flavour to a G&T without buying expensive other liqueurs.

For 2 Strawberry Jam Gin and Tonics add 3 heaped teaspoons of strawberry jam to a glass. Pour over the gin and give it a really good stir. After a few stirs the jam will start to break up in the gin.

Gallybird Tonic Recipes

Pour into the gin balloon glass with a good few ice cubes and top up with tonic. I used Gallybird Premium tonic water for this recipe. They recently sent me a few bottles to try out and I love it. It has a very fine tuned flavour. Which I’ve rigorously tested to find it works with a variety of gins. It’s also sugar free and has no calories so why not give it a try.

“Created in the heart of Sussex, Gallybird is the first sugar free premium tonic water sweetened purely with stevia leaf extract and expertly blended using the highest quality natural ingredients. It has the perfect balance of subtle sweetness with a little extra sparkle to give a feather light, delicious tasting tonic. Thanks to the power of plants Gallybird is a healthy alternative to the sugary tonics currently on the market. Those who enjoy a tipple finally have a natural and unique mixer option with no sugar and nothing to hide.”

Raspberry jam gin cocktail

If you have raspberry jam you can turn that it into a gin and tonic too. Raspberry jam gin cocktail is the same to make like this strawberry one. Add the jam to a glass, add the gin and mix together. Add to the cocktail glass and top up with the tonic. Raspberry jam works so well for an easy to make cocktail. Add some fresh raspberries to the glass for extra raspberry goodness.

The glasses are the gorgeous LSA glasses from Elys Wimbledon. Read more about my summer haul from them here.

    Love the sound of this. I remember many years ago being served a simple cocktail with a spoonful of marmalade under a shot of vodka, and it was excellent. I love this idea to combine strawberry jam and gin!
