Stay Tipsy With A Cherry Kalimotxo

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This weekend I wish to be slightly buzzed, and I wish to exert very little effort while achieving that goal.

This tart, very slightly sweet gin-based cocktail is a riff on the Cosmopolitan. I found the recipe in Robert Simonson's 3-Ingredient Cocktails which, as you probably guessed, is extremely my jam.

Though the original recipe calls for raspberry jam, I give you permission to play around with various fruit spreads; I made mine with blackberry preserves, and it was very nice. To make one yourself, you will need:

  • 60ml gin
  • 22ml fresh lemon juice
  • 1 bar spoon of raspberry (or your other favourite) jam

Add everything to a shaker filled with ice (or one big cube) and shake until it is well chilled. Strain through a fine mesh sieve into a coupe glass.
