Start your weekend right with a breakfast martini.
By Samantha Coles | July 10 2020
Is there a more decadent way to start the weekend than with a breakfast martini? Whether you’re hosting brunch or having a boozy breakfast in bed, this sweet take on the classic martini is deceptively easy to make and goes particularly well with a flaky croissant. This recipe uses The Botanist Gin, a handcrafted and distilled gin from the Hebridean island of Islay, Scotland. A team of botanical scientists forage by hand through the island’s hills and shores for the gin’s 22 herbs and flowers which are used for an “achingly slow distillation” to create a complex flavor.
—2oz The Botanist Gin
—.75oz Fresh Lemon Juice
—2 bar spoonfuls of peach marmalade or jam
Add all ingredients to a shaker, add ice and shake. Fine strain into a chilled glass.
