Thirsty Thursday -Autumn Pick Me Up

written by Melina

The nights are drawing in and the days are getting shorter – Autumn is definitely on its way.  What hasn’t slowed down is the mood, so those in need of a pick me up should head towards the classic that is “The Espresso Martini”

Traditionally we have used good old Kalhua as our coffee liqueur of choice but may well change as we will be sampling some new offerings at next week’s Boutique Bar Show  – particularly excited about the Chase coffee vodka with notes of black cherry, honey and dark muscovado…

Until then we will be making our old favourit

Espresso Martini


50ml Vodka

25ml Hot Espresso coffee

25ml Kalhua

5ml sugar syrup


Shake over ice and strain into a cocktail glass garnish with 3 coffee beans


The perfect Autumn pick me up…delicious
