This 80's British libation was given a makeover by myself at my bar in 2015. It was so popular taht I had to batch the cocktails in bottles in order to serve them faster during service so we didn't get backed up! This cocktail is now made 'fresh to order' for your enjoyment in bottled form! Direct to your door!
I use specialist Brazillian Bourbon roast coffee from the Algerian Coffee Stores, London's oldest coffee house. The beans are so dark and oily, I literally have to push them into the grinder with my fingers otherwsie they fail to grind! I first infuse the English craft vodka with a course grind of their 50/50 speciality Bourbon roast beans before adding the rich espresso. To keep the integrity of the coffee I exchange a coffee liqueur for a rich Sicialian Amaro which complements the coffee and brings extra layers of flavour such as mountain herbs and dark chocolate. I then make a sea salted vanilla and tonka bean syrup which offers further body and balances the bitterness of the espresso and Amaro. The result is something spectacular.
At 24% abv it truly lends itself as a premium liqueur cocktail, but when shaken and diluted with ice it become a truly magnificent cocktail which is enjoyed after dinner, giving you a much needed pick me up!
This drink can be made in 30 seconds. Pour 100ml of cocktail into an ice filled shaker and shake it until your hands go cold and the shaker is frosted! Strain into your cocktail glass and garnish with 3 coffee beans atop of the crema.

The good stuff
I purchased this Martini as a gift for my wife and she really did enjoy it. This is one of her favourite choice when ordering a cocktail at any cocktail bar. I would highly recommend getting this especially if you do not have an espresso machine to make from scratch.
All that is needed was a shaker, strainer and ice for making this drink. Cheers

A really rich, smooth and indulgent cocktail! Mixed to perfection with just enough vanilla to even out the coffee and bitter and still give it a kick!
