We have done all the hard work so can you simply enjoy the fun of shaking, stirring, topping and sipping to indulge perfect cocktails.
One of our personal favourites - Espresso Martini. Perfectly balanced, ready to be shaken over ice and strained into a martini glass - a massive 8 serves per bottle. Our mouth is watering at the thought. It’s a definite yes from US!
Has everyone heard the story of how the Espresso Martini was invented? Well, if not, it is thought that the cocktail was created by Dick Bradsell in 1983 at the Brasserie Soho, London when a woman (now a famous model) asked for something that would “wake me up, then f*** me up”. I can confirm - Dick Bradsell did a perfect job this drink - that’s exactly what it does (in a good way).
The Drunken Jockeys have a pretty sizeable menu when it comes to their cocktail delivery service. There are some classic crowd pleasers, the founder’s favourite (nice personal touch), passing fancies (which are experimental and ever-changing) and mocktails. This range is perfect for whatever you fancy!
The cocktails are delivered in sealed jar with serving instructions attached. It is 100% plastic free and you receive 25p for every jar returned.
We should mention, this company operates in a smaller radius around their Surrey home. If you’re under 10 miles from them - delivery is free (delightful!) Over 10 miles - prices may vary.
