According to Google, the most popular Cocktail in the UK is the Espresso Martini… I guess us Brits love to stay alert while we are drinking, eh? We’ve called this The Corn-ish Espresso Martini as a majority of the ingredients originate from Cornwall. The Aval Dor Potato Vodka is Cornish made and it is one of the most smoothest, creamiest vodkas I’ve ever tasted (and I have had quite a few…). The coffee liqueur is in fact a Rum Liqueur called Kalkar, also born and bred in Cornwall by the Cornish Distilling Co. The only thing that isn’t Cornish is the Coffee this is from a company based in London called Union.
Without further ado;
