A breakfast martini is a cocktail made with gin, marmalade, orange liqueur, and lemon juice (in place of vermouth). The drink was invented in 1996 by bartender Salvatore Calabrese at a hotel in London. It is similar to a White Lady cocktail, with gin, orange liqueur and freshly squeezed lemon juice; some variants of it even call for an egg white, though that is not included in the original recipe.
White Lady is a classic cocktail that is made with gin, cointreau or Triple Sec, fresh lemon juice and an optional egg white. It belongs to the sidecar family, made with gin in place of brandy. The White Lady cocktail was invented by famed bartender Harry MacElhone in 1919 while he was working at Ciro’s Club in London. He originally used crème de menthe, but replaced it with gin later in 1929.
Consists of equal parts gin, lemon juice, curaçao (commonly Cointreau), Kina Lillet (now usually replaced with Cocchi Americano, as a closer match to Kina Lillet than modern Lillet Blanc), and a dash of absinthe. The corpse reviver no. 2 is a popular classic cocktail and arguably the best-tasting of all the corpse reviver drinks.
The sidecar is a cocktail traditionally made with cognac, orange liqueur, plus lemon juice. In its ingredients, the drink is perhaps most closely related to the older Brandy Crusta, which differs both in presentation and in proportions of its components. The exact origin of the sidecar is unclear, but it is thought to have been invented around the end of World War I in either London or Paris. The drink was directly named for the motorcycle attachment, which was very commonly used back then.
