The activity began with a hands-on tutorial on how to prepare the perfect Espresso Martini. Students gathered around a well-equipped bar setup, complete with all the necessary ingredients and tools. Students brew a rich and aromatic espresso shot, select high-quality coffee liqueurs and vodka, and expertly mix them to create a delicious and visually appealing Espresso Martini.
Here’s the recipe they were following:
15mL coffee liqueur
15mL sugar syrup
30mL espresso coffee
3 coffee beans to garnish
Pour coffee liqueur, vodka, sugar syrup, espresso coffee and ice into a cocktail shaker.
Shake all ingredients and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with 3 coffee beans.
As the students prepared their own Espresso Martinis, they had the opportunity to appreciate the art of cocktail making and the nuances of balancing flavors.
To enhance the educational aspect of the event, there was also a coffee knowledge quiz. Students were tested on their understanding of coffee history, different brewing methods, coffee bean varieties, and coffee-related trivia. This quiz added an element of fun competition and encouraged participants to expand their coffee knowledge.
At the end of the activity, students not only enjoyed sipping their freshly made Espresso Martinis but also gained valuable skills in mixology and a deeper appreciation for the world of coffee.
