    We’ve been shaking up a similar drink at our restaurant since early 2010 or so. Might also be up Wendy’s proverbial alley:

    KOWLOON COCKTAIL No. 3
    (Old-Fashioned glass + Crushed Ice)
    ~ 1.5-sp. Citron honey marmalade (ours is a Korean brand)
    ~ 2.0 New Amsterdam gin
    ~ 0.75 Triplesec
    ~ 1.0 Qi smoked tea liqueur (-or- 1.0 Earl Grey simple syrup)
    ~ Splash Sours
    DRY SHAKE–NO ICE!!!.
    POUR OVER ICE in glass… (Be sure the marmalade ends up on top!)
    GARNISH w/ Orange an d a silver spoon-straw.

    This drink was created by Sc’Eric Horner for Fuji & Jade Garden pan-Asian restaurant in State College, PA.
