Couldn’t make it to the London Coffee Festival this year? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Follow these recipes to make these coffee cocktails at home with your Pact coffee.
The Smirnoff Cocktail Masterclass
This year’s London Coffee Festival was a special one. We sponsored two key events - Coffee Masters and the Smirnoff Cocktail Masterclass.
The Masterclass was led by coffee legend Will Pitts and top mixologist La’Mel from Seed Library by Mr Lyan. They whipped up delicious coffee cocktails with Smirnoff Vodka, Bristol Syrup Company Demerara Syrup, Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur and yours truly, Pact Coffee.
Attendees learned how to make the classic Espresso Martini and an exclusive LCF signature coffee cocktail.
Almost a thousand attendees turned out for this interactive experience - and now you can make their creations at home.
The Very Best Espresso Martini
Ask anyone to name a coffee cocktail and surely the first one that will come to mind is a classic espresso martini. This king of caffeinated tipples needs the very best coffee to be great - so we were more than happy to provide the goods.
Here’s how to make your own…
Smirnoff No.21 vodka (50 ml)
Mr Black Coffee Liqueur (20 ml)
Bristol Demerara syrup (15 ml)
Pact Coffee espresso (25ml) (Bourbon Cream Espresso)
Coffee beans for garnish (3)
- Add everything to the tin, add ice. Shake vigorously until the shaker feels very cold/frosty.
- Strain into a coupe glass using a hawthorn and a fine strainer.
- Optional coffee bean garnish.
