Marmalade Cocktail | Cocktail Party

Marmalade Cocktail

The earliest reference we can find to this wonderful little cocktail is in Harry Craddock’s Savoy Cocktail Book from 1930.

Craddock recommends it as a pre-lunch apéritif; the fact that lunchtime drinking has declined in recent decades probably explains how this otherwise-wonderful little cocktail has escaped notice for so long.

It’s a wonderful way to taste the true flavors of a marmalade, and you needn’t restrict yourself to just orange. Grapefruit, blood orange, or lemon marmalade would all make fantastic substitutions if you’re lucky enough to have one on hand.

We double-strain ours to remove the bits from the marmalade; some folks like the effect of leaving it in.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add ingredients to a shaker without ice, and stir to break down the marmalade. Add ice and shake. Double-strain into a small, chilled cocktail glass.

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.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
