Breakfast Martini

Breakfast Martini cocktail

This drink, created by bartender Salvatore Calabrese, is a fantastic upgrade on a typical Mimosa at brunch.

The original recipe calls for orange marmalade, but just about any citrus marmalade would be wonderful here. The bitterer, the better – the drink gets enough sweetness from the orange curaçao.

Calabrese serves his with orange peel grated on the top of the drink, but we find it a bit difficult to drink without getting bits in our teeth. We like a wide strip of orange twisted into the drink and then dropped in.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all ingredients to a shaker. Stir before adding the ice, to help break up the marmalade. Add ice and strain into a small, chilled glass.

Garnish with orange peel – either grated over top or simply expressed and plopped in the glass.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
