Author Notes: I wanted to raise a glass in honor of the author of the belowed "A Wrinkle in Time" when I read the news that she had passed away. I decided to make a special cocktail in her honor. Please use a quality gin such as Hendricks, Plymoth, or Junipero. —clintonhillbilly
juice of one lemon
teaspoon rasberry jam
leafy sprigs fresh mint

- Fill a martini or other cocktail glass with ice and set aside.
- Combine gin and mint in cocktail shaker. Use a muddler or, if you don't have one, a fork or spoon, to bruise mint thoroughly.
- Add lemon juice and rasberry jam.
- Remove ice from martini glass and add to shaker. Shake until very cold and strain into glass. Top with a dash of grated nutmeg.
