Despite being a reasonably young cocktail, born in 1996, the Breakfast Martini has conquered the world in the blink of an eye. It is one of the first cocktails to become famous for orange marmalade among the ingredients, and its author is the famous London bartender Salvatore Calabrese.

In practice, the Breakfast Martini is a White Lady with the addition of a teaspoon of orange marmalade and was called a Martini only because it is served in a martini glass. Still, it has nothing to do with the Dry Martini cocktail. The ingredients of the Breakfast Martini are lemon, gin, triple sec and a teaspoon of orange marmalade and a piece of toast as a garnish. An ode of love to two of the most beloved British fetishes: orange marmalade and gin.

History of the Breakfast Martini

Salvatore Calabrese himself narrates that one day his wife invited him to have Breakfast, to take a slice of toast with orange marmalade, since he usually only drank a coffee. Sitting down, he had an idea: why not translate these flavors into a cocktail? And so was born the Breakfast, a cocktail that we already find in a nutshell in Harry Craddock’s 1930 bible, The Savoy Cocktail Book, under the name of Marmelade cocktail. The two drinks are very similar, but in the older one of Craddock toast and triple sec are not present. Whether he knew it or not, Calabrese was the one who perfected the recipe.

Ingredients and doses to make the Breakfast Martini cocktail

  • 4 cl of gin
  • 3 cl of triple sec
  • 2 cl of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of orange marmalade

How to make the Breakfast Martini cocktail

Squeeze the lemon, filter the juice and put it in a shaker. Add the jam and stir until it is well dissolved. Add the triple sec, gin, ice, shake quickly and pour into a martini glass. If you want to follow old Harry’s advice, squeeze over an orange peel to perfume with essential oils. Decorate with a piece of toast. Although it is considered a classic brunch or aperitif cocktail, the alcohol content is high.
