Welcome to the future of cocktails. A pre-made Espresso Martini so awesome, so rich and so frothy, it’s as if a bartender had mixed it in front of your very eyes.
Small enough to easily fit in the fridge, this cute metal bottle contains a single-serving mixture of premium vodka, cold brew coffee and Fair’s exquisite Café Liqueur, made with Fairtrade Mexican beans. There’s nothing weird, no preservatives and no widgets; just a little bit of air in the top so that when you shake it, a full and frothy head is produced. The result is a bar-quality cocktail at home, without all that clackety noise and without having to make sure your ice cube trays are full, you have all the ingredients and you can find the cocktail shaker. Simply chill it right down, shake vigorously for ten seconds to aerate and mix, then pour the contents into a Martini glass. Float coffee beans on the froth if you’re feeling fancy.
In the 1980s, a customer famously asked London bartender Dick Bradsell for a drink that would both wake her up and… umm, how shall we put this without using an obscenity?… intoxicate her quite a lot. He obliged by creating the Espresso Martini. Due to our booming coffee culture, this cocktail exploded, and the UK now consumes more Espresso Martinis per capita than probably any other country on Earth. Now, thanks to this revolutionary Harvey Nichols Espresso Martini Cocktail, it has never been easier to enjoy this favourite national pastime.
