Crafting the breakfast martini cocktail is fairly simple. It only requires a few ingredients to make. Every sip of this cocktail boasts a deliciously sweet, sour and bitter taste that teases the taste buds. We have curated a perfect cocktail recipe for you.

- Lemon Juice - 22.5ml
- Orange Liqueur - 15ml
- Orange Marmalade - 1 bar spoon
- Orange Peel - 1
- Ice

- Cocktail Shaker
- Cocktail Strainer

-To begin the Breakfast Martini cocktail recipe, prepare a coupe glass by chilling it. You can either freeze it or add some ice to the glass to chill it. Set the glass aside for now.
- Grab a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Ice is an essential part of the cocktail-making process. When mixing spirits and ingredients, ice helps in dilution. It also aids in balancing the flavours and enhancing the taste. 
- Use a cocktail jigger or a measuring cup, to measure the ingredients. This will ensure that the precise quantity of ingredients is used and the resulting drink will be well-balanced. 
- Measure and pour 45ml of Tanqueray No TEN gin and 15ml of orange liqueur into the shaker.
- Next add, 22.5ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice into the shaker followed by a bar spoon of orange marmalade.
- Close the lid of the shaker and shake vigorously to combine the ingredients. Shake until the surface feels well-chilled. This will ensure that the drink is smooth and consistent. 
- Using a cocktail strainer, strain the mixture into the prepared coupe glass. If you used ice to chill the glassware, remember to throw the ice away when before pouring the drink into the glass. 
- Finally, add the finishing touch by twisting a thin strip of orange peel over the drink to express its oils and aroma. Use a cocktail pick and thread the orange peel into it and place it gently in the drink to garnish.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
