  1. Put half of the sugar syrup, lemon juice, bourbon, aquafaba or egg white, marmalade and a few ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a tumbler filled with ice and garnish with orange. Repeat to make a second.

Tip: How to make sugar syrup: This can be bought ready-made, but you can also make your own. Put 100g caster sugar in a pan with 50ml water. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved, then bring to the boil, remove from the heat and allow to cool. Store in an airtight sterilised** jar or bottle. Will keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks.

**To sterilise glass jars, wash in hot, soapy water and rinse well. Dry in the oven for 15-20 mins at gas 1, 140°C, fan 120°C until hot and completely dry. Boil metal lids and rubber seals for 10 mins, then leave to dry.
