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.
