While we obviously love the classics on any cocktail list, it's always fun to see something slightly out of the ordinary and a bit more exciting than our usual tipple. Recently, we came across a special-sounding cocktail that took our fancy, and we simply couldn't wait to share it on Dish Cult.
Taking two of Aucklanders' most beloved beverages, the Flat White and the Espresso Martini, a Ponsonby cocktail bar has done the hard-yards of working out exactly how to combine them to create a silky smooth and sweet cocktail.
Under their Clipper Classics section on the menu, Clipper Bar on Ponsonby Road lists their luxurious Flat White Martini. Presented in a beautifully sculptured martini glass, the drink arrives looking almost too pretty to drink. But that won't stop us.
The classic cocktail mixes Belvedere vodka, Mr. Black Coffee liqueur, whey syrup, and espresso, creating a frothy and decadent mouthful of white coffee with a hit of high-quality liquor.
Clipper lists their inspiration for their classic cocktail range as the great destinations they're based-on, and we can't help but think their Flat White Martini is Auckland in a cocktail!
To get your hands on one of these superior espresso martinis, head along to 3/175 Ponsonby Road and look for the neon sign – it'll lead you to the bar! Clipper also has a marvellous range of other exotic cocktails, often changing so you're never left bored.
