MixMarch #26: The Pharmacological Stimulant

Dick Bradsel came up with this drink at a Bar called the Pharmacy in London. There are legends of a supermodel walking in and asking for a drink to “wake her up and fuck her up”. I’m not sure if that actually happened but in the voice of Steve Coogan, playing Mancunian impresario Tony Wilson, “If you have to choose between truth and the legend, choose the legend.”

This little version was served up last night at the Modern Martini challenge at Mojo coffee headquarters in Wellington. The coffee is roasted a whole ten feet from where the drink was made, so I reckon this might just have been the best drink in the world, for a few minutes, at least. When coffee is this good, you don’t to add sugar.

The Pharmacological Stimulant

60mls 42Below Manuka Honey vodka, 30mls of the finest coffee, freshly made. Garnish with three beans, repeat until your eyes stay open like they’re held there like matchsticks.
