Espresso Martini Fest: Espresso Harder
Riverland gives spring a buzz.
September 18, 2019
In the humble espresso martini, caffeine and booze combine in glorious style. But why just drink regular ol' coffee-flavoured cocktails in elongated glasses when you can try inventive types? There's a time and a place for traditional concoctions, of course. There's also a time and a place to sip salted caramel espresso martinis, Nutella espresso martinis and jaffa versions as well.
Throw in coconut tipples, honeycomb varieties, a fruit-and-nut combo and something called an 'outback espresso' (featuring Australian white spiced rum with spices and bitters), and that's the eight-cocktail menu for Riverland's riverside Espresso Martini Fest back in July. The event was such a hit, it's returning for a second event — Espresso Martini Fest: Espresso Harder.
Drop by from 11am on Friday, October 11, with the festivities in full swing all day — and with the site's range of street kitchens cooking up food to match until 9pm. Live music will also be on the menu from 5pm, followed by DJs, because all that caffeine will give you plenty of energy to expend.
And while it should go without saying, if you don't like your beverages with a considerable buzz, then this isn't the event for you.
