Wake me the f*** up, and give me $1000.

“Wake me up, then f*** me up.” She politely placed her drink order.

It was very late at night, or to some, very early in the morning. As the rumour goes, a very famous model went to a very famous bartender – next minute, The Pharmaceutical Stimulant was born! Or better known to us today as the Espresso Martini.

So thank you to Mr Dick Bradsell, and (allegedly) Naomi Campbell or Kate Moss, you no longer have to lose a drinking buddy to the dreaded words, “Mate, it’s getting a bit late. I’m knackered. Think I’ll be off.” with some hasty eye contact with the bartender, combined with some hand gestures and lip reading, your index finger and middle finger working to place the order – you’ve just solidified another hour of  friend filled drinking!

Espresso Martinis have really stepped up in Melbourne – with Eau de Vie and their masterpiece Espresso Zabaione ft. liquid nitrogen frozen saffron and vanilla mousse, to Mr Miyagi and their show stopping Cold Drip Martini; Shochu, cold drip coffee, garnished with a life changing warm sake and white chocolate foam.

Mr Miyagi – Showing it how it’s done.

 

There is no end to what magical possibilities open up when you explore the night teamed with your favourite spirit with a little booster of caffeine.

Eau de Vie, words cannot even describe your beauty…

It’s a magical world that really, deserves more exploration. It’s for this reason Little Drippa has decided to go on a quest to find some more dazzling libations to the sum of $1000 – yup, one. thousand. dollars. Exciting, no!?

There’s no coincidence that the age of the Enlightenment came around the exact same time coffee hit the scene, so with a bit of creativity, lets start to shed a bit of light on the bar scene, and find this revolutionary new cocktail! With a thousand reasons to be apart of the movement, it’s hard to say no really…

A night of cocktails or Netflix? …Why not both!?

Hello hello! Long time no see, my apologies. Excuses and what not, you know how it is. So! Lets jump right into things.

Right now I’m currently sitting down outside, listening to the tinny patters of rain spearing down through this 19 degree cold weather. Yesterday! However – I would’ve been shielding myself in an air conditioned room to fight off the suffocating heat of 39 degrees. Melbourne, amirite?

On the topic of Melbourne weather, let me intro you to: Melbourne Weather!

I don’t know about you, but I’m not much of a flowers person. So if I was ever to receive a gift this little box of goodies would be right up my alley! Then luckily enough, out of nowhere, this little box of goodies turned up to my work!

Sending a drink to the end of the bar to get a certain someones attention is one thing, but sending 6 drinks to someone from across the city!? This pulls right at the heart strings!

So what exactly is this magical box, and where can you acquire one? Cocktail Runner is a new up and coming mastermind that has realised the need for cocktail expertise at our front door. They go all across Melbourne, finding the top bartenders and then boxing up their skills along with all the necessary ingredient. Long were the days were you had to choose between Netflix & Chill or bar hopping – now you can have the best of both worlds!!

Just quickly, can we please observe how cute these little bottle of bitters are!? Along with possibly the most perfect limes I ever did see, this box of wonders also comes with step by step instructions as well as an inventory list to ensure you’re not missing any little novelty umbrellas.

To make the Melbourne Weather brought to you by none other than Mr David Whitehead (Venue Manager of Polly Cocktail Bar, and all round good guy) you’re given Melbourne Tea-infused Matusalem Platino Rum, limes, ginger beer, the cutest bitters ever produced and a rainbow of cocktail umbrellas.

Step by step, after pouring the ingenious concoction of rum into the Mojito glass, after layering ice and squeezes of fresh lime, you sprinkle the top with bitters, top with ginger beer – then behold! You’ve now made a Melbourne worthy signature cocktail, and your company will be thoroughly impressed!

So instead of planning an expensive night out on the town over this holiday period, why not plan a cocktail night in? With an extensive list to choose from, such as Basil Daiquiris, Espresso Martinis, one called Cookies and Whisky (hello…), and more! You can have a night in, with all your favourite people, all your favourite cocktails, and all your favourite shows!
