Hey Food in Jars mastery challenge participants! Looking for something fun to do with those marmalades you all put up in January? How about using them as an ingredient in a cocktail? A couple weeks ago through a Instagram page I came across the cocktail blog Beautiful Booze. Reserving a little bit of my fan girl status, I admit that I instantly bookmarked several of her recipes. Not only have I found myself wooed by her blog layout, photography, and cocktail creativity, but also by the fact that the author is super cute. I was surprised by the number of cocktails that I could already make with the limited ingredients in my slowly growing home bar.
When I saw that Natalie’s breakfast martini sour recipe called for orange marmalade, the idea for this deployed goods post began. My plan included spicing the recipe up with a bit of my Angostura Blood Orange Marmalade. The result? An sweet and tart martini sour. Obviously delicious for breakfast, but enjoyable anytime of the day. Cheers!
