Jam'n Tonic

My absolute favorite summer drink - aside from beer, of course - is a tall, cold, refreshing gin and tonic.

I wanted to see what would happen if I combined my favorite hot weather cocktail with a summer brew - Two Roads Road Jam

What happened was magic.

The crisp, dry gin and tonic mixed with the gently sweet and slightly sour Road Jam made for a wonderful hybrid beverage that is perfect to cool off and relax with.

I substituted the traditional gin and tonic lime garnish with a lemon wedge to compliment the lemon grass in the Road Jam.

Jam'n Tonic

2 ounces gin
4 ounces tonic
6 ounces Road Jam
1 lemon wedge 

Fill a tall glass with ice. Add the gin, tonic and Road Jam. Squeeze the lemon wedge into the drink. Stir gently. Enjoy.
