A breakfast martini is a form of cocktail created by bartender Salvatore Calabrese. The most famous "marmalade cocktail", it is a gin martini with marmalade, orange liqueur, and lemon juice in place of vermouth.
The drink was invented in 2000 at the Library Bar at the Lanesborough Hotel in London, England. A similar drink, the Marmalade Cocktail, was invented in the 1920s by Harry Craddock and published in his standard reference book, the Savoy Cocktail Book.
The name has been applied to various other martini-style drinks as well.
