Marmalade Cocktail

Yellow cocktail with foam and lemon twist

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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
