The Happiest Hour – $12 Espresso Martinis
Sydney siders rejoice, you can now get our famous cookie & cream espresso martinis for just $12 between 5-6pm Monday to Sunday.
We’re all a little bit bonkers for The Espresso Martini right now and understandably so. It combines two of our favourite legal drugs into one viscous visceral package that simultaneously peps us up and leaves us without a care in the world. Every bar worth a damn have their own proprietary recipe, us included.
Ours is no great secret – in fact we’re not only going to share with you the ingredients of our show stopping Espresso Martini, but also the method and tips and tricks that elevate our version to true greatness.
Firefly’s cookies & cream espresso martini
Kahlua? Pffft. We use only the best coffee liqueur – Mr. Blacks, made right here in Australia. Accept no substitutes.
Vodka – any good quality brand.
Mozart White Chocolate Liqueur (hard to find but worth it)
Chocolate Sauce. Yup, chocolate powder, made into sauce.
A shot of espresso coffee.
Here are the expert tips:
Mix all ingredients to equal parts. Want to make a two litre jug full? Very good I applaud you. Simply add 400ml of each ingredient then text me your address so I know where to send the ambulance.
• Use lots of fresh Ice when you shake. A cold drink is a good drink.
• use freshly made coffee. Not instant. Definitely not decaf.
• Shake shake shake hard as. Dont be a pussycat, shed some sweat!
• the topping. You can use top deck or milky bar. Use a cheese grater to smother that cocktail in chocolate shavings like its the second coming. You’re not making cocktails, you’re making dessert.
How did that work out for you champ? As good as you had it at Firefly? Of course not – we’re masters. But you’re in luck. Come visit us during our Happiest Hour – that’s any day between 5 and 6pm, when we’re knocking up our Cookie & Cream Espresso Martinis for $12 a pop.
