Chilled Coffee Cocktail: Nespresso Martini

Since we moved into our new home over a year ago and finally have it just as we want, we’ve been making the most of it by hosting friends and family for dinner parties, Sundays by the pool, and even weekends visits from our UK friends. Before I became pregnant with Honor last year, I had been trying my hand at being the bartender hostess, which of course necessitated making a sophisticated drink whenever we had guests over. While I’ve been off cocktails for a while now due to my pregnancy, I’m admittedly a bit too excited to have a drink here and there again (don’t worry guys, my intake is very low and I have made sure to wait a few hours between breastfeeding! If you’re breastfeeding, always talk to your doctor first). I partnered with Nespresso and Holy Water (the bartending company who created the signature cocktails at my wedding!) to bring you guys the most unique cocktail we’ve done yet. As you guys know, I’m a huge coffee fan, with a healthy love for spirits (I am English afterall) – so this coffee-infused tequila/vodka cocktail is just up my alley. See below for the step-by-step recipe. It does take some preparation, but you’ll feel like a pro bartender by the end! Enjoy.

Chilled Nespresso Cocktail

Ingredients
2.5tbsp Patron XO cafe
1tbsp coconut oil washed vodka (add 4 tbsp of coconut oil to 16oz vodka, shake hard and rest for 24 hours)
1tbsp grass fed butter
2.5tbsp Nespresso Fortissio (about the size of an espresso!)
1.5tbsp Homemade brown sugar syrup (2 parts brown sugar, 1 part water. Bring to a boil, stir, simmer, rest)

Directions
Shake all ingredients for 8 seconds with good solid ice cubes and strain into a chilled glass (martini glasses are recommended, though I love these little gold tumblers!) Garnish with fine grated Nespresso chocolate. If you really want to go out, garnish with edible gold dust for extra glam!

If you’re having a go at making this at home, don’t forget to recycle your empty Nespresso capsules. I’m always saving mine to take back to my local Nespresso boutique for recycling when I’m stocking up. It’s easy, you can use the home collection service Nespresso offers or simply drop them off at your nearest Nespresso boutique or Café – or even at one of the 6,000 Doddle and Collect+ locations across the UK. If you’re in the UK, find out more here, or if you’re in the US click here to find out more about all the different ways to recycle your capsules locally.

  • Happy Mother’s Day!
I want to dedicate this post to one of my dearest friends, who became a Mummy to premature surrogate twins this year, only to tragically lose them a few hours later, as she held them in her arms. My friend had been through years of trying for a baby through IVF, and finally - after years of hope and patience - we all felt her and her husband’s dream of becoming parents was about to come true.
That heart-breaking day also happened to be the date Honor was born, so the poignancy was all the sharper. I still remember the moment I learned the news. My own mum was with me, and we wept silently, hugging. 
I fully expected my friend to avoid Mackenzie and I for a while, to deal with her grief. Surely being around a newborn would just be too much. But testament to her angelic, brave character, she asked to come over. I’ll never forget the warmth and love in her eyes as she held Honor tight. She said she was full of hope. She said that the twins would be watching over, helping and guiding them on their continued journey to have a baby. 
You’d think that would be enough to focus on, but no. Instead, this wonderful couple decided to set up @pompomsandstardust , a charity not only raising money to help other people have surrogate children, but one that offers crucial (and lacking) advice and support to the ‘IP’s’ (intended parents), along their journey. 
If you or your loved ones have been through a difficult time conceiving, my heart goes out to you- I wish you strength, perseverance- and please feel free to share your story below.
The charity website will be up soon with more information, but for now follow @pompomsandstardust 💫
