Last summer my column Hungry Mutineer featured a menu on cooking with gin. My favorite recipe from that was this Gin Soaked Lamb Sandwich with Fennel Salad and Blackberry Gin Sauce.

Emily G’s out of Georgia came up with this exciting rendition of this infamous cocktail, using their delicious Strawberry Pineapple Jam in place of passion fruit juice, which is often added to a Hurricane for a fruity punch of flavor.
