Wake up to efficient mixing

THE company behind cocktail mixer brand Funkin has enhanced its range of pre-batched cocktail mixers with an Espresso Martini variant.

Said to have been invented by mixologist Dick Bradsell in the 1980s, when a young woman asked for a drink that would do more than wake her up, the Espresso Martini is becoming more popular in bars – and the new product will allow bar staff to serve the classic cocktail without the need for separate coffee equipment.

The mix is described as using a blend of “high quality ingredients” including Arabica cold brew coffee, coffee extract and a “hint of vanilla”.

Funkin managing director, Andrew King, said: “The Espresso Martini is seeing a spike in popularity as classic cocktails continue to gain appeal.

“It was a natural next step for Funkin to add this serve to our repertoire of premium pre-batched cocktail mixers, providing customers with an efficient and consistent solution so they can easily recreate this great-tasting drink time and time again.”
