“I am honored to partner with Lavazza, pioneers in the craft of coffee and masters in the art of blending. Almost 20 years ago, my friend and celebrated London bartender, Dick Bradsell, changed the way bartenders think about coffee as a cocktail ingredient with his Vodka Espresso Cocktail. I have revisited his original inspiration and produced a series of coffee based cocktails for all occasions and the ultimate cocktails have opened my eyes to the versatility of coffee as a cocktail base.”
