How about an Espresso Martini garnished with Bourbon on the side… @CGCocktailClub

This is the ‘Espresso Martini’, as made by Covent Garden Cocktail Club. This espresso and vodka fuelled cocktail was invented by Dick Bradsell, a London bartending legend. Having spoken to Dick about this fantastic concoction, he claims it was made for a supermodel who asked for a drink which would “pick me up… then fuck me up”.

Covent Garden Cocktail Club, and it’s close relatives, the London Cocktail Club (Shaftesbury Avenue & Goodge Street) are known for their drinks with unique garnishes. In this case, it’s a bourbon on the side. However, if you get a chance, get down to their other branches to try out the ‘Bacon & Egg Coupé’. This one is served topped with a strip of crispy bacon and a egg Haribos sweetie!
