25ml Lemon Juice

10ml Simple Syrup

Take your Boston glass or small tin and, using your jigger to measure, add the Seedlip, lemon juice and simple syrup to the shaker

Using your bar spoon, add one or two spoonfuls of marmalade to the shaker.

Fill your shaker with cubed ice and seal with Boston tin or lid, before shaking vigorously for 10-15 seconds or until your tin is very cold.

Remove your glass from the freezer or empty of ice if necessary.

Using your Hawthorne strainer and your fine strainer, double strain the cocktail into your chilled martini glass.

Garnish with an orange twist.

Serve and enjoy!

History

The drink was created at the Lanesborough Hotel in 1996 by Salvatore Calabrese. The structure of the drink is a White Lady. A Marmalade Martini appears in Harry Craddock’s Savoy Cocktail Book. Similar in construction, Craddock didn’t use triple sec in his version. Calabrese maintains the inspiration for his drink came solely from his marmalade breakfast.

The story of the breakfast martini’s creation, unsurprisingly, started at breakfast. Being what he calls typically Italian, Salvatore’s breakfast would usually consist of a shot of espresso before leaving for work. One morning his wife forced him to eat something, claiming he looked more tired than usual, she made him marmalade on toast. He went to work that day with the idea of using the ingredients in a drink.
