TIA ESPRESSO

The idea of shaking coffee together with alcohol was first made famous by Dick Bradsell, while he was working as a bartender at Fred’s Bar – one of the best local hotspots in the 80’s. Rumor has it that a famous top model (some say the model was Naomi Campbell) walked up to the bar one night and asked for a drink that would, “Wake me up”. This is when Dick put a shot of espresso into the shaker, mixed it with vodka, sugar and a dash of Tia Maria. He served the drink in a martini glass. The top model tasted it and exclaimed: “This is really what I needed! What’s the name of this cocktail?” Dick answered: “Espresso Martini, Madame”. Tia Espresso is our version of this delicious drink, featuring the unmistakable aromatic notes of Tia Maria, which enrich this cocktail adding more depth and smoothness to the mix.
