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.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
