Oh, what a way to start a weekend day! I used Brokers Gin and some orange marmalade that a friend made for this breakfast martini. The marmalade and Cointreau go so well with the gin. And the lemon adds just a hint of tartness to offset the bittersweet marmalade. Easy and quick to make. This could easily become my Sunday morning "orange juice."
Delicious! After his first sip, my husband said "This is tasty! Is there more?" The flavor of the gin and Cointreau paired perfectly with the lemon juice and marmalade. The marmalade gave just the right amount of sweetness to balance the tart lemon juice and blended nicely with the alcohol. This breakfast martini would be a great addition to breakfast, brunch, or any other time of day. I ended up making 3 martinis total. The first one we shared. Then it was decided we each needed our own.
