Let the holidays begin!

DSCF4774 (2)I was feeling festive tonight and invented a fabulous new cocktail!  I do enjoy a good red wine but my “go-to” cocktail for a girls’ night out is usually a Cosmopolitan.  If you’re a cosmo drinker then you will certainly enjoy this Sugar Plum-tini using Etta Mae Gourmet’s Sugar Plum Jam.

Sugar Plum-tini

3-4 oz. freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
2 TBSP Sugar Plum Jam or other tart berry jam
1 1/2 oz vodka
1 oz Aperol or other orange liqueur

First, stir the jam into the grapefruit juice and make sure it is thoroughly combined.  Next, fill up your cocktail shaker with ice and add the vodka, Aperol and the juice.  Shake vigorously and pour into a martini glass.  Enjoy!

My Sugar Plum Jam is a delightful combination of sweet cherries and tart cranberries with a hint of cinnamon. Perfect for the winter holidays!
