Fans of the sweet combination of caffeine and alcohol can rejoice, because a dream job has just landed in the alert box.
The combination of coffee, vodka and syrup has fast become the nation’s favourite cocktail, according to research – and even the most argumentative would have a hard time making the case against that one. Just a brief stroll through Soho on a Friday night will have you craving an espresso martini, as you see London’s night owls sipping on that moreish nectar.
Back to the job and, trust us, it’s a good’un. The Bottle Club are on the lookout for someone to taste espresso martinis and…wait for it… get paid for the pleasure.
To be clear, this means that instead of handing over ten pounds sterling to the skilful mixologist in exchange for the gorgeous concoction, you’ll be given both cash and drink.
That one lucky fan who earns this esteemed role is sure to feel like a million dollars — not simply because they’re pockets aren’t as light, but because they’re drinking the number of espresso martinis we secretly all want to, but can’t always justify. If you can deal with that sore head in the morning, this is just the job for you.
Those applicants with espresso-martini-tinged-taste-buds can expect a three month position, tasked with tasting over £500 worth of the cocktails around their city.
According to the job page, candidates will rank the drinks according to:
- The flavour and strength ratio;
- The appearance and garnish;
- The value for money;
- The quality of ingredients used;
- Shaken or stirred.
