The Birth of a Classic: Coffee Meets Martini

The history of coffee-based cocktails dates back to the 19th century when mixing coffee with alcohol was already a popular practice. Coffee was a favorite ingredient for mixologists and bartenders to add depth and character to various concoctions. However, it wasn't until the 1980s when the classic coffee martini, also known as the "espresso martini," made its dazzling debut.

The invention of the coffee martini is attributed to a renowned British bartender, Dick Bradsell, who created it in the late 1980s. As the story goes, a supermodel approached Bradsell at a London bar, asking for a drink that would "wake her up" before a photoshoot and "mess her up" after it. Inspired by her request, Bradsell combined vodka, coffee liqueur, and a shot of freshly brewed espresso, shaking it vigorously to create a frothy and revitalizing cocktail that soon became a hit worldwide.

Over the years, various twists and adaptations of the coffee martini emerged, each highlighting the distinct qualities of the coffee and spirits used. Our Blonde Bastard Coffee Martini proudly stands as a tribute to the rich history of coffee cocktails, representing a perfect balance of boldness and elegance.

Blonde Bastard Colombia Cold Brew: The Heart of the Martini

At the core of our enticing coffee martini lies the soulful and smooth Blonde Bastard Colombia Cold Brew. Sourced from the verdant coffee plantations of Colombia, this cold brew is a testament to the dedication and craftsmanship of our coffee artisans. The beans are carefully selected, roasted to perfection, and brewed slowly in cold water to extract the essence of their flavors.

The cold brew process creates a refreshing and less acidic coffee concentrate, adding a depth and complexity to the martini that traditional hot-brewed coffee cannot match. The Blonde Bastard Colombia Cold Brew brings forth notes of chocolate, caramel, and a subtle hint of fruitiness, creating a truly enchanting coffee cocktail experience.
