Nashville-based sisters Amy Lorber and Erin Ackley have taken their childhood passion in a very adult direction with their jam company, Bathtub Gin. Each of their jams is a blend of organic fruits local to their Nashville home (with a few imports from neighboring states)—but with the hint of something a little stronger. Yes, we’re talking booze. One of our favorites is their Peach Brandy-Blueberry jam. Try it atop chévre, or mix it with gin, lemon juice, and ginger beer in a Blue Bangtail. Perfect for whenever you need a refreshing hit of summer.
