Marmite and Honey old fashioned 

Marmite Cocktail

Leverage Marmites distinct and potent taste to create a  mesmerising flavour.

  • ¼ teaspoon of Marmite 
  • 3 teaspoons of honey 
  • 3 teaspoons of water 
  • 50ml of Jack Daniel’s 


Step 1: Add honey, Marmite and water into a mug and stir until the Marmite has dissolved.  

Step 2: Add a tablespoon of this honey-Marmite solution to a glass before adding Jack Daniels and ice.  

As you’ll find with a lot of these recipes, it’s essential to add the ice AFTER you’ve dissolved the Marmite or it tends to solidify and clump up, and you’ll be left with a some rather sorry looking Marmite tadpoles in your glass. Even the most limited imaginations can picture how unfortunate this might look.
