Breakfast Martini

Breakfast Martini With Marmalade Gin Lemon Juice And Orange Liqueur

The Breakfast Martini, crafted by bartender Salvatore Calabrese at the prestigious Lanesborough hotel in Mayfair, is a renowned example of using jam in a cocktail during the revival era. Inspired by his wife’s suggestion to enjoy toast and marmalade for breakfast instead of his usual espresso, Calabrese ingeniously created this modern classic at the Library Bar.

Despite its name and gin base, the Breakfast Martini differs significantly from a traditional Martini. Its delightful resemblance to a White Lady, featuring gin, orange liqueur, and freshly squeezed lemon juice, along with similarities to the Corpse Reviver No.2, make it a vibrant and balanced drink. With its bright, juicy flavors, subtle sweetness, and refreshing tartness, the Breakfast Martini has gained well-deserved fame in the cocktail world.


.5 oz LEMON JUICE, Freshly squeezed
