Breakfast Martini

Next Sunday, treat your Mum to a boozy breakfast in bed. We’ve gathered four Mother’s Day cocktails to help inspire your creativity.

Is your Mum of the Sipsmith persuasion? If she takes her G&Ts seriously, if her friends know her as a cocktail maven, and if a boozy breakfast in bed sounds like her ideal way to start the day, then congratulations: you’ve clearly inherited your sipping genes from the best. Next Sunday, toast to your Mum with these four Mother’s Day cocktails (and if you make an extra one for yourself, well, we’re sure she’ll understand).

Long Sloe Squeeze

Created by our own Master Distiller Jared Brown, this cocktail is perfectly suited to breakfast in bed, thanks to its generous amount of orange juice. Vitamin C and celebratory sloe gin together in one? Sipping perfection.

25ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin

25ml Sipsmith Sloe Gin

125ml freshly squeezed orange juice

Add all ingredients to a highball glass and fill up to the brim with very cold ice (be sure you’re using freshly squeezed orange juice, in lieu of the stuff that comes in the carton — it really does make a difference). Stir briefly. Garnish with an orange slice.

Blueberry Pancake Fizz

This Mother’s Day cocktail perfectly evokes the flavour of blueberry pancakes.

What’s better than a stack of blueberry pancakes and something refreshing on the side? This Mother’s Day cocktail, which manages to perfectly evoke the flavour of pancakes — and is even greater than the sum of its parts.

50ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin

20ml maple syrup

10ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 egg white

10 blueberries

Mini pancake or blini to garnish

Muddle the blueberries in a cocktail shaker. Add all the other ingredients and dry shake. Add ice and shake again. Double strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with a mini pancake.

Red Snapper

For a wickedly savoury start to the morning, we love this Bloody Mary alternative. The Red Snapper swaps gin for vodka, and in so doing, earns a permanent place in our breakfast-in-bed roster.

50ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin

Juice of ¼ lemon

6 dashes Worcestershire sauce

3 dashes Tabasco sauce

100ml tomato juice

Freshly ground black pepper and celery salt, to taste

Fill a highball glass with ice and add the first five ingredients. Stir to blend with a bar spoon, gently, before garnishing with the pepper and celery salt. Garnish with either a slice of lemon or a stick of celery — your preference.

Breakfast Martini

Breakfast Martini

The Breakfast Martini beats toast when it comes to the best vehicle for your morning marmalade.

Invented by legendary bartender Salvatore Calabrese, the Breakfast Martini beats toast when it comes to the best vehicle for your morning marmalade. Mum is sure to agree.

1tsp Seville orange marmalade

50ml Sipsmith London Dry Gin

15ml triple sec or Cointreau

15ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, add all four ingredients, and shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and garnish with an orange twist.
