The Cocktail

Originally made by Dick Bradsell in London, 1983 for a customer who wanted a drink to “wake her up and f**k her up”!! This mix of vodka and coffee certainly can hit the spot.


Bartender Tip:

Some like to use Hot Coffee, some prefer Cold Coffee – why not try both and see if it makes a difference to your cocktail
