What’s On: Mr Black Espresso Martini Fest August 2017

A classic cocktail, the Espresso Martini is a cocktail that will wake you up. First created in London during the 80’s this cocktail had it’s own festival in Australia for the last few years and this year, it’s coming home. During a three day event, bars across London will be hosting the first UK Espresso Martini Festival. Throughout the festival, you’ll be able to get your hands on discount cocktails, experience master classes and enjoy boozy brunches. The festival takes place between the 10th – 12th of August, making your summer that bit brighter!
