Celebrate International Coffee Day with Tia Maria

Next Monday 1st of October is International Coffee Day and to celebrate, Tia Maria is creating the world’s largest Espresso Martini in Australia’s coffee capital – Sydney.

Taking place at Sydney’s Cruise Bar, the cocktail will stand at 2.2m tall in a custom-made glass, and hold an impressive 600 litres, the equivalent of 5,000 espresso martinis.

The World’s Largest Espresso Martini Cocktail Recipe

  • 286 bottles of Tia Maria Coffee Liqueur

  • 286 bottles of vodka

  • 200 litres of Vittoria Coffee

To kickstart the day’s festivities in suitable style, Tia Maria has partnered with Australia’s favourite pure coffee brand Vittoria Coffee, a third generation family business who have been roasting Arabica coffee in Australia for over 60 years, to offer free coffees between 10am and 12pm at the venue.

From 12pm, event ticket holders will be able to raise a glass to the occasion and enjoy a complimentary Tia Maria Espresso Martini before experiencing the latest in coffee cocktail innovation with an exclusive menu of coffee cocktails of the future.

As part of an ongoing mission to create coffee cocktails like no other, the event which is part of the Tia Maria Coffee Project, will showcase the Tia Popcorn Frappe, the Tia Coffee Tonic and Tia Flat White Russian.

To join the celebrations, coffee connoisseurs and cocktail lovers are invited to register here for one of the two afternoon sessions – gratis.

“The espresso martini is fast becoming the signature cocktail of Australia so where better to celebrate our commitment to making the world’s best, than overlooking the iconic Sydney Opera House. As a coffee loving nation, craft cocktail culture is taking many of its cues from coffee culture and vice versa, so it’s no wonder drinkers are looking to what’s next as they demand new and exciting flavour profiles.”

Mark Hickey, Tia Maria, Brand Ambassador comments.
