Tequila is the drink of choice for many a debauched hen weekend, but here at Red 7 we believe that hen weekend drinks should be a little out of the ordinary.
We’ve created a cocktail worthy of a truly special hen weekend by taking the classic espresso martini and giving it a luxurious twist.
Patron is the absolute premium when it comes to tequilas and the Patron XO Café is an incredibly luxurious blend of Patron Silver tequila and coffee. The result is the perfect ingredient for a hen weekend espresso martini.
This cocktail is ideal for kicking off your hen weekend celebrations with a sophisticated tipple, a boozy hen do brunch, or for giving the girls a much-needed boost as the weekend gets well under way.
This recipe can be made with or without a cocktail shaker.
50ml Patron XO Cafe
1 shot espresso
Roughly 1/2 pint glass of ice cubes
1. Add 50ml of Patron XO Café tequila and 1 shot of espresso to a glass tumbler or cocktail shaker full of ice.
2. Cover and shake until the liquid is ice cold.
3. Pour into a martini glass and garnish with coffee beans if you like.
You could also serve this drink in coffee cups and make up enough Patron XO Café espresso punch to fill a coffee jug. This cocktail mixology method is quicker, less messy and looks incredibly cute in hen do photos!
