In celebration of International Coffee Day on the 1 October, Tia Maria has announced Sydney’s first ever dedicated coffee cocktail masterclass. Guests can shake and stir extravagant cocktails at Sydney’s ultimate speakeasy, Eau De Vie.

Celebrating coffee cocktail culture in Australia, guests can try their hand at making 3 different cocktails; the signature Tia Espresso Martini, Twisted Tia and Espresso Zabaione.

What goes better with coffee than dessert? As such, Eau De Vie’s chefs have created a bespoke dessert menu to accompany each cocktail.

Guests will also get to enjoy their own drinks made by the cocktail connoisseurs at Eau De Vie while enjoying the class. An array of delicious sweet treats will also be paired with the cocktails.

It’s no secret that Australians love their coffee cocktails, with Queenslanders demanding the most espresso martinis on an average night out, drinking 43% of Australia’s total consumption of the cocktail, followed by NSW (22%), SA (13%) and VIC (13%). Furthermore, 1 in 3 consumers aged 22-34 said they would like to see more coffee houses serving alcohol (Mintel).

First invented in 1980 by Dick Bradsell, Tia Maria was actually the original coffee liquor included in the Espresso Martini. Cocktail fans can book a spot in the masterclass for $30 per person via Eventbrite.
