Created in 1990s London by Salvatore Calabresse, this tangy Gin drink, the Breakfast Martini, is closely related to the Marmalade cocktail from the Savoy Cocktail book of 1930, combined with a twist on the equally classic White Lady cocktail.
The use of marmalade adds a delightful mouthfeel to these variations on the ‘Sour’ formula. What the Breakfast Martini most definitely is NOT, is a Martini. However, as a drink from the 1990’s, the use of the word Martini was just tagged onto any drink served in a cocktail glass, aka ‘Martini’ glass. You can add Appletinis, Espresso Martinis and the like to this somewhat confusing era of cocktail naming!
