Espresso martinis on tap, bottled whisky ones and the version with soy sauce – London bars are serving up this classic drink in some quite unexpected ways…
Black Watch – Mac & Wild
The bottled one
The UK’s first bottled whisky espresso martini. You can either buy it bottled to go, or try it served up at one of Mac & Wild’s bar and restaurants. With the whisky, it’s a smoky, salty and sweet tipple.
Made with Talisker 10 and infused with Edinburgh’s own artisan roast Janszoon coffee beans, coffee liqueur, amaro, cold brew, served in a swanky gold wax-sealed bottle.
Black To The Future – City Social
The futuristic one
Not one to do things the conventional way, Jason Atherton’s City Social bar has created a fresh and futuristic take on the espresso martini.
Made with Mr Black coffee liqueur, Aylesbury Duck vodka and dash of soy sauce. It’s garnished with a Back To The Future inspired OUTATIME number plate.
Find it: City Social, 25 Old Broad St, London EC2N 1HQ, UK
Exotic Take On A Classic
A Turkish twist on our favourite cocktail, you’ll find it in the middle of Borough Market (come and try it out, whilst giving the market some love).
Made with vodka, Turkish coffee, Kahlua and cardamom syrup.
Fid it: Arabica, Borough Market, 3 Rochester Walk, SE1
