The Marmalade Cocktail first appeared in Craddock’s The Savoy Cocktail Book (1930). The cocktail is a gin sour to which marmalade has been added. The original recipe calls for orange marmalade, but we made it with a homemade mango and ginger marmalade that was hiding in our fridge and weren’t disappointed.


The Breakfast Martini is a modern classic created by Italian bartender Salvatore Calabrese in the 1990s, inspired by the classic breakfast of marmalade on toast. Cointreau and fresh lemon juice give the drink a delicate balance of sweet and tart that quickly made it a sensation on the craft cocktail scene.


"The Breakfast Martini has all the components that a cocktail needs to stand the test of time. It is tasty, has a curious name, has a nice backstory, [and] has an unusual yet accessible ingredient," notes Greg Boehm of Cocktail Kingdom.


More importantly, the cocktail is accessible and easy to make. "I have always said that these factors are the secret to a great cocktail," says Calabrese.
