Lavender Hill, last minute cocktail

So, there you are: They just called and they’re coming over for a drink; there’s almost nothing left in the house, liquor cabinet or refrigerator after the weekend’s rush of mixin’ and fixin’. Do not despair! Here’s something you can put together in a flash with what’s around the place. And as you pour it out remark nonchalantly, “I just love a Lavender Hill on Mondays.”

This serves 4

Lavender Hill Lavender Hill vert
6 ounces gin, tequila, vodka or light rum (or mix and match)
4 ounces pineapple juice
1 tablespoon blueberry or blackberry jam
1 ounce lime juice

Mix the jam, lime and pineapple juices in a pitcher until the jam is dissolved. And the spirit and several ice cubes. Stir until combined and chilled. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer into a chilled cocktail. Garnish with an orange wedge.
