Cocktails are my jam! October 01 2015, 0 Comments

It's Friday, which means it's time to think about what you'll be sipping when 5pm rolls around! Is there any happier thought? Our very good friends at Portland's newest and super coolest barwares shop Bull in China, asked to play around with some of our jam in their cocktailing work and, well, it was a no-brainer. We sent them a jar of our cardamom-and-cinnamon spiced Italian Prune Plum jam, which seemed like a just the thing for a mid-autumn cocktail. Bull in China partner and bartender extraordinaire Daniel Osborne whipped up this gorgeous tipple, called the "Speaking Terms", and our new favorite post-work beverage was born. Warming Irish whiskey and spicy Benedictine pair with the prune plum jam just like a dream. Check out all of their super chic barwares on their website here, and shake up one of these tonight! 

 Speaking Terms
 1.5 ounces Jameson
 .5 ounces Dolin Blanc
 .5 ounces Benedictine
 .5 ounces lemon juice
 .25 ounces honey syrup
 1/2 an egg white
 1 bar spoon Italian Prune Plum jam

 Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker without ice,  and shake hard for 20 seconds. Add ice and shake to  chill. Strain into a coupe and drink up!

Happy Friday, jam lovers!

Cheers!
