Christmas coffee cocktail video recipe: The B-52

We’re kicking off the Christmas season and the countdown to the end of 2016 (finally) with a retro coffee cocktail – the B-52!

A favourite on the ’70s club scene, the B-52 was invented by Peter Fich, a head bartender at the Banff Springs Hotel in Alberta. He named all his new drinks after his favourite bands, albums and songs. This drink was, of course, named after the band, the B-52s!

There are plenty of different versions. We’re using coffee liquor, Irish creme whisky and Grand Marnier. As for the perfect layers. The trick is to pour your liquors over the back of a dessert spoon and into your shot glass.

Three different liquors, no ice – what could possibly go wrong?

Our Gimoka and Gran Caffè Garibaldi espresso ranges are specifically designed for Nespresso machines. Designers spent years making them so they’re a perfect fit, which means they work just as well as a traditional Nespresso capsule and won’t harm your machine in the slightest. The brew process isn’t put under any extra strain when you use our compatible capsules and the coffee produced is just as good, if not better. Also Nespresso has repeatedly stated that using compatible capsules won’t void your warranty, so even if something goes pear shaped (which it won’t), you’re still covered. So sit back, relax and dream of Italy. Oh, and save hundreds of dollars a year drinking our not only cheaper, but also authentically Italian coffee!
