as everyone knows, i do love my martinis. hence it is always good to broaden your horizon and add more flavour to it … this one reminisces my london years:
what makes it special, is the added bitter orange marmalade … it gets a bitter-sweet twist, but not in a sickening way.
in a cocktail shaker combine 4 parts gin (i used bombay sapphire), 2 parts orange liqueur (i used grand marnier), 2 parts lemon or lime juice and 1 teaspoon bitter orange marmalade (use a variety with thin strips of orange) and shake with a couple of icecubes. strain into a martini glass (you want to add the orange strips from the shaker too!) and start sipping. it is martini heaven. giny, orangey, bitter and sweet at the same time!
regardless of what you think, i would not recommend it for breakfast though … 🙂
