Jamuntini / Jamun With Gin - Cocktail # FoodieExtravaganza

Jamuntini is Jamun with Gin which is a cocktail with a desi twist.  Jamun or black plum is an Indian fruit that is purple in color and has a sweet and sour taste. 

When this theme was given by our Host Caroline Williams, for this month's 
Foodie Extravaganza,  this martini drink immediately  came to my mind and decided to make it, since this fruit is available only during this month. 

A twist to the regular cocktails for all those gin drinking ladies and gentlemen, here is a martini with a sweet and sour taste. This does not require any aerated drink. This is a delicious summer drink and it has a awesome color. Serve this Jamuntini for your weekend party and watch your guest relish in the beauty of this rich purple pinkish color.

Ingredients60 ML London Dry Gin
7 - 8 Jamuns - pitted
15 Ml Lime juice: 10 ml
20 Ml Simple syrup
Salt, Pepper and Chilly powder to rim
Ice to fill shaker


Muddle the jamuns in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, add the gin, lime juice and sugar syrup. Shake and double strain into a chilled salt rimmed cocktail glass. Serve immediately.

To rim the glass

Run a slice of lemon over the rim of the glass.
Mix red chilly power to the salt as well and then rim the glass

  1. I don't think I've ever had jamun, but the color they give the drink is so pretty! Thanks for joining in the theme.

  2. I have never heard of Jamuns....I wonder if I would be able to find them? Do they ever freeze them for preservation?

    1. I have never tried freezing them, you could make a puree and then freeze. This is very soft since it has a lot of water content.
