I'm always looking for ways to use my stockpile of jams and preserves, there's only so much toast a girl can eat right?
Last week I was craving tart sweet lemonade, but wanted something with a bit of a twist. Just a spoonful of jam in each glass creates a custom flavor that is sure to please.
juice of 4 lemons
1/2 c sugar, or to taste
1 quart of water
assorted berry flavor jams
Juice lemons and run through a fine mesh sieve to remove any seeds. Add sugar and water and stir to combine. Chill completely. To serve put 1 tbsp. jam into each glass (I used raspberry and blackberry). Fill with ice and pour lemonade over the top. Add a swizzle stick for stirring and a lemon slice to garnish.
