Madam Eliza

About the serve and why I like it: Next up, this absolute beauty! Named after Eliza Cholmondeley, arguably the mother of Marmalade who features one of the earliest recipes ever recorded, in her book published in 1677.

Difficulty level: Medium-difficult and involves a sub-recipe for one ingredient

Tasting notes: This complex little number has it all: bitterness, texture, aromatics, sourness the lot.

Top tip: Now it's important you get a good quality Seville orange marmalade, one with lots of orange skin and pith to add the bitterness.

Three words to sell this cocktail to your guest: Mellow, Earthy, Aromatic
