Kahlúa, the coffee liqueur, has invented takeaway Espresso Martini ‘glasses’, perfect to enjoy coffee at picnics or parks on the go, to celebrate its new bottle design. Made through 3D printing, the liqueur has pioneered a prototype that could offer bars and coffee houses a chic way to offer takeaway Espresso Martini cocktails this summer to enjoy at home.
A limited run of the cups has now been produced to help the brand test the invention, which they are hoping to further develop and roll out over the coming months. With coffee shops being one of the few places to have remained almost consistently open throughout the last year, a new survey has revealed that as a country we are drinking more coffee than ever before – with the average person having 900 cups a year – or 56,700 in a lifetime.
Helping to bring some fun to these coffee consumption moments, Kahlúa is working with the Greater Toronto Area’s Dolly Trolley Drinks, handmade home delivered cocktails by globally acclaimed bartender Kelsey Ramage and her team, to add the much-loved Espresso Martini cocktail to the menu!
Commissioned to mark the launch of Kahlúa’s vibrant new bottle design, a research of 2,000 Canadian adults* found 69 per cent can’t go a day without a coffee, and 89 per cent would drink coffee in any form – including flavoured coffee and coffee in cocktails.
Since lockdown started, one third of respondents have been drinking more coffee than usual and have even been experimenting with incorporating the drink into other aspects of their lives including coffee-scented candles (20 per cent), coffee-flavoured body scrubs (13 per cent) and adding coffee into their cooking and baking (56 per cent). It’s no surprise then that nearly half of those asked said the Espresso Martini was their cocktail of choice as it offers the ‘best of both worlds’.
Made from 100% Arabica beans, Kahlúa’s coffee credentials and Mexican roots were the inspiration behind its new bottle design. To celebrate, the brand is blurring the lines between bar and coffee worlds, and shaking things up with Kahlua Espresso Martinis to-go via Dolly Trolley Drinks.
For one weekend only (June 4 and 5), Torontonians can buy a 2-serving Espresso Martini cocktail at 50% off or, even better, buy two and gift one to a friend for the price of one – a delicious shared experience to shake up your lockdown. Pick-up at Civil Liberties Bar at 878 Bloor Street West between 2pm-9pm. In addition, Kahlúa lovers will have a chance to win more take home prizes.
