So we are drinking a...

Breakfast Club

View Recipe

On this day in 1897, Doctor John Kellogg, a Seventh-Day Adventist, served the world’s first corn flakes to patients at his Michigan sanitarium, as part of his idea of a healthy diet.

But it was his brother William who made them famous, by adding sugar and marketing them as a breakfast food. John sued to stop Will's commercialisation of his healthy product but he lost, and breakfast has never looked back.

We are raising a glass to William Kellogg, and breakfast in general, with a concoction that would have his brother spinning in his grave, a Breakfast Club.
