Have you heard of the breakfast martini? It was a popular cocktail that was invented in 2000 by world renowned bartender Salvatore Calabrese. He decided to make a unique martini using orange marmalade. In honour of his success with the breakfast martini, we’ve created the brunch perfect cocktail using tangy grapefruit as the perfect mixer. Flavours of orange, grapefruit, and lemon with the light kick of Top Shelf’s Gin botanicals make this an easy drinker throughout summer, but even more so during your Sunday brunch.
- 1½ oz Top Shelf Gin
- 3 tsp Orange Lemon Marmalade
- ½ oz Fresh Lemon Juice
- 3 oz Grapefruit Juice
- 3 Dashes Top Shelf Cardamom Bitters
- Dried Apricots
In a shaker filled with ice, add gin, marmalade, lemon juice, and grapefruit juice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain into an ice filled rocks glass. Add 3 dashes of Top Shelf Cardamom Bitters and garnish with dried apricots. Express oils of a lemon peel over the cocktail and rub on the rim. Discard the peel.
