Strawberry Gin Jam Cocktail

Make your next gin cocktail with a spoonful of strawberry preserves for the perfect easy take on a cocktail at home. For this Strawberry Gin Jam Cocktail you can avoid making strawberry syrup, and use up some of the fresh citrus that’s in season right now. I loved this combination with gin, but it would work with rum or whiskey, too.
