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.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
