Mr Black’s festival of the Espresso Martini returns to London - with a new pop-up hub!
- Shop 4, The Old Truman Brewery, Dray Walk, London, E1 6QR
- 17/08/2018 to 19/08/2018
Celebrating the capital’s most famous cocktail in 100 of the best bars across the city for a tasty four-day festival along with their preferred vodka partner, Belvedere. And new for 2018 - the Aussie brand have created Mr Black’s Church Of Coffee– a four day pop-up dedicated to the celebration of coffee culture!
Taking over one of the shops on Dray Walk (part of the Truman Brewery) this specially built space will be your hub for the festival – open from morning til late – they are paying homage to the humble bean with coffee and coffee cocktails available all day – for just £6 with a festival pass and guest bartenders on the Friday and Saturday night.
You can Choose Your Own Adventure with six variations on the classic Espresso Martini. Switch your spirit to understand just how versatile this delicious little livener really is – try it with Courvoisier Cognac, El Dorado Rum, Don Julio Tequila, Bourbon, London’s own favourite spirit – Gin or for those that believe you can’t improve on the original – you can stick to how it was intended - with Belvedere Vodka.
For those looking for something a bit more unusual – there’s twists on Dick’s original recipe. Popcorn, Salted Caramel or Nitro Espresso Martinis anyone?
Or how about a White Russian Slushy – c’mon!?
For those looking for something more (ahem) serious in their glass – there’s also a menu of Caffeinated Enlightenment – which are coffee-twists on classic drinks so think Coffee Negronis, Cold Fashioneds plus a chance to taste the brand new Mr Black Coffee Amaro mixed in a Yuzu Cup.
With Camden Brewery beers as a perfect palate cleanser, plus food, music, masterclasses and more…
Mr Black’s Church of Coffee is the perfect place to start or end your evening over the four-day festival!
