The Marmalade Cocktail

Published on Jan 3, 2018


The Marmalade Cocktail was first featured in the Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock, published in 1930.  This is a kind of cocktail that’s equally appropriate for brunch or evening. The star ingredient is the Seville orange. It has an intense sweet-tart flavor with a woody orange note unique to bitter orange.  Blends perfectly with gin. The original recipe calls for lemon juice, but I decided to put a twist on it by mixing various citrus.  I feel like it gives cocktail more depth. Try it both ways and decide which one you like.

  1. Place 1 tsp of marmalade in a shaker.
