Miniatures are a really important part of how we think about our drinks here at Myatt's Fields Cocktails:
They are fun. They are an opportunity to try a drink you haven't had before. They easily fit into a pocket or handbag.
If you have ice and (ideally) a glass, having a miniature with you means you have everything you need. There aren't many gifts that are more fun to receive than a complete cocktail.
For the student or aficionado, they offer a chance to compare the different vermouths, sherries, spirits and bitters without spending hundreds of pounds.
The bottles are pretty, and can be used in countless ways once empty. Some of the best examples we've seen include an inkwell and a spice receptacle.
Served straight up, it will not get too warm before it is finished, and on the rocks it will not end up disappointingly dilute by the time you have got to the bottom of the glass.
A blend of vodka, coffee liqueur, and Monmouth Coffee.
Smooth and velvety, this espresso martini can induce a dream state at any time of day. The espresso sits at the front of the drink and combines with the vodka to alert every sense and delight while its doing it.
Pour it into a shaker full of ice, and shake it hard for about twenty seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass, and you will have a beautifully balanced drink with an attractive and substantial crema.
Garnish with three coffee beans – the con la mosca, which is the traditional Italian way to serve sambuca – the three beans ‘with the fly’ represent health, wealth, and happiness. Whether guaranteed or not, starting with a nice drink makes complete sense.
