Snap Scene: Adelaide’s First Cocktail Festival – The Espresso Martini

The Espresso Martini – blame Dick Bradsell! Created in the late 1980s Soho, London. A model asked for something that would, “wake me up, and then f**k me up.” (some speculate the model was Kate Moss, others Naomi Campbell, but Bradsell has never revealed her identity.) Dick admits that the cocktail’s invention happened out of circumstance and annoyance with the coffee machine being right next to his drink’s station… and because Vodka was all the rage in the 80’s. The cocktail got so popular that we enjoy versions in bars around the world. And now… there’s a FESTIVAL!

Espresso Martini Festival ADL is the first of an annual cocktail competition designed to celebrate the rise of cocktail bars in Adelaide. They’ve rounded up some of the best Cocktail creators in Adelaide who will be presented with the challenge to make Adelaide’s best “Espresso Martini”.
