Preserves in Cocktails

Whiskey Sour with Marmalade

Whiskey Sour with Marmalade

Bartender Jeffrey Morgenthaler of Portland, Oregon's Clyde Common tavern gave us the recipe for this extravagant twist on a whiskey sour.Todd Coleman

Fruit preserves have always been a reminder during colder months of the previous summer's bounty, and there's no quicker or lovelier path to those memories than with a cocktail. I combine tequila and black currant jam, mix rum and fig jelly, and, best of all, shake orange marmalade into my whiskey sour, where it adds texture, sweetness, and an extraordinary touch of citrus-peel bitterness.
