Espresso Fesso — An Espresso Martini Festival
Try as many different espresso martinis as your heart can handle at this well-caffeinated festival.
As far as boozy beverages go, nothing beats the espresso martini. It gives you a buzz, it's a crowd-pleaser and most venues have one on their menu. In fact, they're so beloved, Brisbane has scored a couple of festivals dedicated to them — and, to put a spring in everyone's step in 2021 (because we need it, let's be honest), another one is about to hit.
Espresso Fesso — An Espresso Martini Festival will take over Welcome to Bowen Hills on Saturday, February 27 — and, because it's likely to sell out quicker than the jolt from your favourite beverage, it's hosting two separate sessions from 11am–2pm and 3–6pm. As it's happening on a Saturday, you can either get your caffeinated cocktail fix without worrying about the alarm going off the next morning, or spend your other day off feeling mighty energetic.
Of course, there are no prizes for guessing what's on offer. Still, don't just expect the usual 'tinis combos of coffee and alcohol. More than ten Brissie joints will be stirring up a storm, so you'll have plenty of different versions to try.
If that sounds like enough to make you bounce around Bowen Hills, then that's the point; however, there'll also be food available to line your stomach.
You'll get one drink included in your ticket, and you can buy take-home cocktails as well. The lack of sleep that night is also part of the package, obviously.
Tickets go on sale at 5pm on Monday, February 1.
