Aaaah, the 80’s. What a decade to celebrate. Not only was it famous for power suits, shoulder pads, big hair and awesome music like George Michael – it was also about this time the very first Espresso Martini recipe was created using Tia Maria. Yes, the Espresso Martini is over 40 years old – believe it or not – and still partying. But since then, coffee lovers have enjoyed many variations of the coffee cocktail using Tia Maria as a base. The three most prominent elements of Tia Maria – the full bodied rich coffee; the fragrant Madagascar vanilla; and the Jamaican rum – make this sweet liqueur perfect on its own over ice; with a splash of milk (just like mum used to make), or combined with other ingredients to create extraordinarily delicious cocktails. So to celebrate the ongoing coffee cocktail revolution, Tia Maria master blenders have come up with some mind-blowing creations that we recommend you try at home next time you plan to invite a few friends over. Problem is, they’ll probably keep coming back for more….so get grinding and enjoy!
