So, my bestie Ananda sent me the most amazing jam from her vacation in Hawaii. (Luckyyyyyyyyy)
It's my new favorite ingredient. It's actually a chutney, so it's sweet and spicy, which is one of my favorite flavor combos.
At first, I used it as a spread with cheese and crackers (which was ahhhmazing).
Now, I'm thinking of using it in a very unusual way.
Remember when I made my We Jammin' Cocktails in the photo below?
Click on the link above then, boo boo.
Basically, I threw *a heaping spoonful* of jam into a cocktail shaker with vodka and a bunch of other yummy things and made a cocktail that even my husband couldn't resist.
And he doesn't like to drink.
I'm thinking of making a sweet and spicy cocktail with the papaya chutney. You know, kind of like those jalapeño cocktails, but sweeter.
I will experiment with it and post the cocktail once it's perfect and habit-forming.
In the meantime, I'll leave you with this easy to make and refreshing cocktail that went so well with the papaya chutney and cheese.
It's basically a Pineapple Bellini, made with fresh pureed and strained pineapple.
Glorious, decadent champagne.
Stay tuned for the chutney cocktail recipe!
