This is the kind of thing that happens when I start talking to people about orange marmalade:

The group tags, in case it isn't obvious — you'll probably have to look at the hires version to see 'em. (In case it's not showing up, they're "Shredhead" and "Shredless Wonder" for me and moth_wingthane, respectively.)

100% accurate, too!

Apricot, please. =:)

Still, I'll admit to not having tried marmalade in ages, and I've developed something of a fondness for measured bitterness, as with my recent kick of gin exploration. Not the usual huge brands, but stuff like Heston's Earl Grey & Lemon, or Martin Miller's. Either are beautifully drinkable by themselves, or with a good tonic (eg Fever Tree) and plenty of ice.

I rather like marmalade; I find that the bitterness nicely offsets the sweetness, which is otherwise often too dominant in jams for my taste. In fact, I've never encountered a marmalade that has been TOO bitter, though I've encountered plenty that were too sweet despite containing citrus fruits.

I recently stocked up on Wilkin and Sons' 'Tawny' Orange — that one's very nice. I can't link to it, as the Tiptree website does not produce URLs you can copy and paste, but it's described as follows:

A less sweet marmalade with a rich full-bodied flavour and succulent chunks of peel. This marmalade is cooked twice to give it its rich dark colour and caramelised flavour.

Sounds nice, doesn't it? I recommend trying it if you haven't yet.

Apparently Wilkin and Sons also has a lime marmalade, a grapefruit marmalade and a blood orange marmalade available. That last one's a limited edition and thus unlikely to be available here, but the other two... I'll have to try to procure those. :)

Gin, meanwhile, is not something I ever got into, but on the one occasion where I had a gin tonic as an apéritif last year, it was certainly very nice, something I could get used to as a refreshing drink for the summer months.
