Oh, those crazy Finns! In Finland, today is Sleepyhead Day, when the last person in the house in bed is woken with a bucket of cold water or an involuntary dip in a lake or river.

In the town of Naantali, one local celebrity will begin the day by being carried, still in nightclothes, to the sea and then dunked. We can think of many more pleasant ways to start the day than a drenching in cold water, and just one of them is with a Breakfast Martini, world-renowned Salvatore Calabrese's eminently palatable blend of marmalade, gin and orange.
