Toast and Marmalade

Toast and Marmalade cocktail with bourbon, Drambuie, honey syrup, lemon juice, orange marmalade and chocolate mole bitters

We’re perpetually charmed by cocktails that evoke the flavors of foods, and the Toast and Marmalade from Megan Deschaine at The Macintosh is one of our favorite examples.

It’s easy enough to get marmalade in there – a heaping teaspoon is all you need – but what of the toast? Deschaine came up with a blend of bourbon, chocolate mole, and smoky-sweet Drambuie (a scotch-honey liqueur) that absolutely nails it.

If you don’t have smoky chocolate mole bitters (we like Bittermens), regular chocolate bitters still make for a wonderful flavor.

We found it in Imbibe magazine, listed as a brunch cocktail, but it’s equally lovely by the fire on a cold winter day.

Ingredients

Instructions

Vigorously shake all ingredients with ice; you may need a little extra violence to ensure that the marmalade is sufficiently incorporated in the mix.

Strain into an ice-filled short glass, and garnish with sprig of thyme and/or an orange slice.
