You know how it is. You are having a group of friends over to your place for that mid-morning meal and, while you know that you can be brilliantly creative in the kitchen, what to drink is an issue.

It is unlikely that orange juice or coffee alone is going to add a "wow" component that makes the whole experience memorable and you keep seeing that bottle of gin in your peripheral vision.   But is it too early for Gin? When is the right time?

The right time is now and thankfully there are plenty of ways to enjoy a gin with brunch that really compliment what you are enjoying food-wise.

Here is one of our favourites that will help bring out your inner morning person.

Nonesuch Brunch Cocktail
40ml Nonesuch Dry Gin.
2 tsp. Orange marmalade.
20ml. Fresh lemon juice.
15ml. Simple syrup.
Lemon Peel.

Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
Shake, then strain into a cocktail glass.
Garnish with a strip of lemon peel and enjoy with buttered toast on the side.
