What do the Sex Pistols, Margaret Thatcher and the Espresso Martini have in common? Well, we don’t know if all three were ever in the same bar at the same time, but we do know they all found fame (and some say notoriety) in 1980s London. There are several claims for the origin of the Espresso Martini. The more common claim was created at Freds Club, a Soho bar in the late 80s by bartender Dick Bradsell, for a young model who wanted something to “wake me up and f**k me up”. We can’t think of a drink that better embodies the spirit of London. With many variations, this perfect recipe combines Grey Goose Vodka, Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liquor, Espresso Coffee Extract, and sugar cane. It’s an ideal cocktail for those who need an extra shot of life to make it through the night.
To serve, fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour Dr Onyx Espresso Martini and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with fresh coffee beans.
There are many stories about who created the first Negroni. We like to believe it originated in Florence, Italy in 1919 when Count Camillo Negroni asked for a stronger version of his favourite cocktail – the Americano (Campari, Red Vermouth and soda water). The bartender replaced the traditional soda for gin, and the world-famous aperitif was born. The definition of sophistication and simplicity – the Negroni is a tonic for those who would rather be sitting in a local bar during what the Italians refer to as ‘aperitivo hour’.
Serve Dr Onyx Negroni swirled, not shaken in a short glass over ice. Traditionally garnished with a slice of orange or the preferred blood orange adding a more dramatic fragrance, and a sweet and tart flavour.
There are many claims to the origin of the Margarita. Some say it evolved from the traditional ‘Tequila Daisy’ (Margarita is Spanish for Daisy), similar to the Margarita with more focus on lemon and lime, than the balance of orange liquor in the Margarita. Others say it was created in a Tijuana bar for the Ziegfeld dancer Majorie King. Another popular story is that it was created by socialite Margarita Sames for guests at her Acapulco holiday home. Regardless of how it originated, the blend of Tequila, Cointreau Liqueur, and lime is one of the most popular cocktails of choice.
To serve, line the rim of a tumbler with fresh lime and dip the rim in salt. Fill the glass with ice, then pour Dr Onyx Margarita. Add a squeeze of fresh lime and drop in a lime wedge to complete your ‘south of the border’ experience.
