The popularity of the Espresso Martini has led the team from Baileys to go one step further by promoting the Flat White Martini.
Inspired by the New Zealand coffee serve, the cocktail is a mix of espresso, vodka and Baileys Original Irish Cream, shaken with ice and served in a martini cocktail glass.
The serve is proving a “huge hit” at new London rooftop destination, Forest Restaurant & Cabin Bar at Selfridges. The store’s head bartender Luis Silva has seen big demand for the cocktail and he predicts its popularity will continue to soar.
“I have always enjoyed reimagining classic cocktails and bringing new concepts to customers,” he said. “The Flat White Martini is no exception and is a simple yet brilliant twist on a popular cocktail that is set to be the new drink of choice.”
The cocktail is also available at the West End store’s Harry Gordon’s bar.
