The Cocktail Pantry Twists Series is made in partnership with Stonewall Kitchen. Recipe and ideas are my own.
Hello and welcome to day two in our Cocktail Pantry Twists series. We’re back with Stonewall Kitchen to show you how a breakfast staple can make a tasty addition to your drink.
Marmalades refer to jams made with citrus fruits, and while orange is most often associated with marmalade (I grew up with Paddington Bear and his marmalade toasts), all manner of citrus fruits can be used. For today’s cocktail, we’ll be using Stonewall Kitchen’s Pink Grapefruit Marmalade. This sweet tart jam is a delightful partner to rum. We’ll be using a white rum today so that the sugarcane and grassy notes found in the rum shine alongside the sweet-tart richness of the marmalade.
This twist on a Daiquiri cocktail utilizes the sharp tartness of the grapefruit to compensate for limes that might not be the best in flavor, or if you’re using an alternative to lime juice (see the list below), then this will give it the citrus boost your drink needs! I find the sweetness of the marmalade to be enough for me, but if you’d like your drink to be a tad sweeter, try adding in a 1/2 ounce of simple syrup.
NO LIMES? TRY THESE ALTERNATIVES:
- Meyer Lemons
- Orange Juice
- Organic, all natural bottled lime juice
Pink Grapefruit Marmalade Daiquiri
2 ounces white rum
3/4 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice (or alternative, see list above)
1 heaping tablespoon Stonewall Kitchen Pink Grapefruit Marmalade
1/2 ounce simple syrup, optional
dried citrus wheel garnish
In a shaker, 2/3 filled with ice, add in the white rum, lime juice, Stonewall Kitchen Pink Grapefruit Marmalade, and simple syrup if using. Shake hard for 20 seconds, and then strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with citrus wheel.
