Not the healthiest way to start the day but the Breakfast Martini is a delicious fruit Martini all the same. Orange Marmalade is the traditional way to spice up this cocktail, but an Orange and Tangerine Preserve delivers an extra citrus kick. Created by Salvatore Calabrese, with a nod to Harry Craddock's Marmalade Cocktail.
A twist of orange zest floats at the top of a Breakfast Martini cocktail.
Fill a Martini glass with ice and water to chill it while mixing the cocktail.
Add lots of ice to the mixing tin.
Shake the drink well until condensation forms on the outside of the mixing tin.
Discard the ice and water in the glass.
Fine strain the contents of the mixing tin into the glass.
Taste the cocktail and if necessary adjust the balance with a touch of extra sugar or citrus juice.
Garnish the cocktail with a flamed lemon zest.
