We hate to say everything is better with booze. But sometimes, everything is better with booze. First dates? Spirits are a requirement. Hot cocoa? Go ahead and hit it with Bailey’s. Toast? Yep, even that. And that’s why we’ve round up the sauciest spreads staggering around the Internet.
3. Rum Raisin Apple Pie Jam: Granny Smith and the California Raisins got together, opened a bottle of rum, and something amazing happened. If you introduce the two to a piece of cornbread, expect a regular old hootenanny. (via Serious Eats)
4. Fig Jam With Rum: Newtons have always been our favorite form of fig. Imagine what’d happen if homemade not-cookies were paired with this little number. That’s right: Minds would be blown. (via Modern Wifestyle)
6. Tequila Sunrise Marmalade With Orange and Pomegranate: The gallons of the classic cocktail that you sucked down during Spring Break may give you taste aversion. But trust us, one spoonful and you’ll be craving a south of the border adventure. (via Serious Eats)
8. Cherry Brandy Freezer Jam: Brandy has never been our jam (see what we did there), but turns out when you add in cherries and actually make it into jam, it instantly garners fans galore. (via Om-nom Sauce)
11. Frederickson Peach And Southern Comfort Jam: King Frederickson of Prussia had a major crush on preserved peaches and would taste test up to 17 jams every day before noon. Whether that’s true or not, we’ll leave you with one set-in-stone-fruit fact: This jam is delicious. (via Bluebonnets & Brownies)
12. Blueberry, Hatch Chile & Tequila Jam: Sunday mornings, reading Lucky Peach with a cup of coffee and… what’s this? A piece of dry toast? Gasp! We think not. Grab some blueberries and get on it. (via Crunchy Chicken)
13. Meyer Lemon Champagne Preserves: Since NYE is right around the corner, you’re going to want to put this jar away and save it for January 1. Think of it as a sort of hair of the dog that grandma would approve of. (via Jelly Toast)
14. Brandied Vanilla Pear Jam: Fruit might not be 100 percent fruitful in winter, but our good friend Barlette is ripe for the picking until February, meaning this recipe is calling your name. Right. Now. (via Serious Eats)
