What do you do when you have blackberries left over? That was my conundrum after I had a box leftover 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.

I think 2 smoothie recipes so close together is so shows a lack of imagination on my part.

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.

Can you believe that blackberries are great in jam recipes and great in cocktails? They rare definitely versatile and don’t be surprised if you see a completely different recipe with them in it.

Instead of using fresh blackberries, I used my blackberry jam. It was freshly made and has all the ingredients that I you would use in a blackberry martini.

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