About Time: You Visited Belvedere’s Espresso Martini Pop-UpBy Angelica Malin
If we had to write a top three list of our favourite cocktails, it would feature an espresso martini. This cocktail is a sophisticated little devil, and we love the heady blend of coffee and vodka. If, like us, you enjoy this caffeinated tipple, Belvedere Vodka are bringing the iconic cocktail back to its spiritual home in Soho, opening Café Belvedere from Thursday 15th February until Sunday 18th February.
Café Belvedere: The Lowdown
The drop in pop-up will be open during London Fashion Week, providing both style and liquid concoctions for the ultimate fashion crowd, shoppers and vodka connoisseurs. Belvedere in Italian translates to ‘beautiful to see’ and inspired by this concept the brand is bringing to life Café Belvedere; a premium, industrial style coffee shop, serving only the ultimate espresso martini.
The espresso martini’s origins are traced back to London’s Soho in the 1980’s, and now Belvedere will bring their own twist on an iconic classic back to where it all began.
Café Belvedere: Drink
At Café Belvedere, Belvedere will preview the new Belvedere Espress, the fastest Espresso martini serve from a vintage inspired syphon and designed to be enjoyed and shared with six friends (or four thirsty humans). Alternatively, drinkers can choose from three cocktails specially curated by senior Savoy mixologist, Martin Hudak, that offer a new twist on a classic coffee based cocktail – using Belvedere slowly infused with fresh mint or ice cold Columbian brew coffee.
Known and celebrated for its all-natural, additive free character, Belvedere Vodka will be collaborating with partners who also share excellence, provenance and purity at their core; Martin Hudak – ‘Coffee in Good Spirits’ champion 2017 who is bringing his expertise; Over Under, bringing their locally roasted coffee beans, and Mr Black brings award-winning coffee liqueur.
