The History and Origin of the Jamtini

The Jamtini, a delightful fusion of jam and cocktail, dates back to the early 20th century during the Prohibition era in the United States. As traditional alcoholic beverages were banned, innovative bartenders sought alternative ways to create unique and flavourful drinks.

One of the earliest mentions of the Jamtini can be traced to the 1920s, when it was served in underground speakeasies. Around this time bartenders started experimenting with different jams and exploring the possibilities of blending flavours to create memorable cocktail experiences. Over the years, the Jamtini has evolved and adapted, with new variations to suit changing tastes and preferences.

The Jamtini is now a staple in many cocktail bars and beloved by both seasoned cocktail connoisseurs and beginners alike. Its unique combination of sweet and tangy flavours, along with its visually appealing presentation, makes it a favourite choice for those looking to indulge in a drink that is both delicious and aesthetically pleasing. The Jamtini is a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of mixologists who push the boundaries of cocktail culture.

The Key Ingredients of a Jamtini

A well-crafted Jamtini is a symphony of flavours, carefully balanced to create a drink that is both delicious and visually appealing. While the exact ingredients will vary depending on the recipe, there are a few key components that are essential to the creation of a Jamtini.

  1.  **Base Spirit** The base spirit forms the foundation of the Jamtini and provides the alcoholic content. Popular choices for the base spirit include vodka, gin, and rum, each adding its unique character to the drink.  (And don’t forget non-alcoholic ‘spirit’ options also.)

  2. **Jam** The jam is the star of the show, adding sweetness and flavour to the Jamtini. From classic strawberry and raspberry jams to more exotic choices like fig and apricot, your jam choice will greatly influence the taste of the cocktail. (Our latest favourite = Riberry Raspberry GIN Jam!)

  3. **Citrus Juice** Freshly squeezed citrus juice, such as lemon or lime, adds a refreshing tang to the Jamtini, balancing the sweetness of the jam and adding a burst of acidity.

  4. **Simple Syrup** Simple syrup, a mixture of sugar and water, is often added to the Jamtini to enhance its sweetness and create a smooth mouthfeel.

  5. **Garnish** A visually appealing garnish adds the finishing touch to the Jamtini, elevating its presentation and creating an enticing visual experience. Fresh fruits, herbs, and edible flowers are all popular Jamtini garnish choices.

By careful selection of the key ingredients, mixologists can create a Jamtini that is truly extraordinary and not only tantalizes the taste buds but also delights the eyes.

Currong Comestibles three ‘sweeties’ are the perfect starting point for your Jamtini creations.


One famous Jamtini is the Breakfast Martini. One of our favourites is the Marmalade (Martini) Mocktail showcasing our Rainforest Lime & Kumquat Marmalade. We’ve made it non-alcoholic and perfect for dry July (but it’s just as glorious with the addition of 30ml of your favourite Gin).

We think this is the perfect brunch Jamtini mocktail combining two breakfast standards, a cup of tea ☕ and Marmalade.


We’ve also used Bush Peppermint in our recipe. This easy to grow herb is an Australian native with an herbal and earthly fragrance/taste reminiscent of ‘Chocolate Mint’.


Another Jamtini favourite is our newest sweetie – Riberry Raspberry GIN Jam! (More to follow 😋!)
