What do you do when you have blackberries left over? That was my conundrum after I had a box left over from my slow cooker blackberry jam.

Ordinarily, I would just put them into a smoothie recipe, but, that would be boring because I just posted a healthy smoothie recipe

Tips for making it

– If you use store-bought blackberry jam, use a little extra.  Add about 1 tsp more per glass

– Garnish with a blackberry and olives or even a strip of coconut

– Keep it chilled until ready to serve

– Use tequila instead of coconut rum for a stronger martini

– The recipe also works with strawberry jam.

Since it is so close to the end of the year, I thought I would create a cocktail recipe. A fruity recipe is exactly what December calls for because drink recipes are in demand now.

This one is a gin martini recipe because I thought blackberry jam and coconut rum worked better with it.

Why Blackberry jam?

Instead of using fresh blackberries, I used my blackberry jam. It was freshly made and I had all the ingredients needed for a blackberry martini.

Blackberry jam also gives the drink a deeper sweetness to the martini. This martini has a little sludginess that makes it stand out.

Finally, I garnished it with frozen blackberries but you can garnish it with fresh blackberries.

For the alcohol, I went with Malibu strawberry rum because it’s the perfect complement to the blackberry. This rum also makes a simple Malibu drink transport you to the Islands!

If you love something sparkly instead, then there is a delicious drink for you. This limoncello spritz is made with Prosecco wine which makes it stand out.
