The Breakfast Martini is a sophisticated and delightful cocktail that incorporates a common breakfast staple—marmalade—into its mix. This cocktail is easy to make with just a few ingredients and offers a unique twist on traditional martinis. It's perfect for brunches or any time you want to start your day with something special.



Chill Your Glass:

  • Begin by placing a martini glass in the freezer to chill. This will ensure your cocktail stays cool and refreshing as you sip.

Mix the Ingredients:

  • Fill a Boston shaker with ice to cool down the ingredients quickly.
  • Add the gin, Cointreau (or Triple Sec), fresh lemon juice, and a teaspoon of marmalade to the shaker. The marmalade not only sweetens the drink but also adds a slight texture and complexity.


  • Secure the lid on the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. Shaking helps to properly integrate the marmalade with the liquid ingredients and chills the mixture thoroughly.

Strain and Serve:

  • Strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass to remove any large pieces of marmalade and ice shards.


  • Garnish with a twist of lemon on the rim of the glass. This not only looks elegant but also adds a hint of citrus aroma which enhances the drink’s flavors.



For those with a sweeter palate, consider adjusting the recipe to include equal parts gin and Cointreau (30 mL each). This adjustment will enhance the sweetness and provide a richer citrus flavor.
The Breakfast Martini is an excellent choice for those looking to enjoy a cocktail that is both refreshing and unique. With its blend of citrus, sweet marmalade, and the botanical notes of gin, this cocktail is sure to please anyone looking to elevate their morning routine or add a touch of class to their brunch table.
