Upon tasting both of the berry jams from Joyful Jars, blueberry lemonade and black jack berry jelly, my mind went straight to booze! That tends to happen to me a lot!
The Black Jack Berry Jelly from Joyful Jars is sooo delicious. It is a blackberry and jalapeno jam with a beautiful true pepper flavor sans the heat and is studded with sumptuous bites of practically whole blackberries! I found it to be incredibly delicious muddled into a cocktail featuring tequila, elderflower liqueur, ginger beer and lime!
The Black Jack Mule-a-Rita
- 2 ounces good for the price Reposado Tequila, such as Hornitos
- 1/2 lime (3 or 4 slices)
- 1/2 ounce elderflower liqueur
- 2 barspoons Joyful Jars Black Jack Berry Jelly
- ginger beer, such as Reed’s or Ithaca Beer Co.
In a glass, muddle the sliced lime along with the Black Jack Berry Jelly, tequila and elderflower liqueur. Strain with a julep strainer into a rocks glass filled with ice. Top with ginger beer and garnish with a lime slice! Cheers with someone and enjoy!
This cocktail was so refreshing. It will really hit the spot in the heat of the summer! Fruity, sweet, peppery and spicy! It has everything going for it!
