The GC is getting an espresso martini bar!

We know you all love coffee so much you’d happily inject it straight to your veins, so why limit the addiction to one half of the day? Especially not when Crafted Coffee Co is bringing a dedicated espresso martini bar to The Kitchens! Yep, that’s right, when you’ve exhausted yourself exploring the Gold Coast’s brand new food playground, and your arms are weary from carrying bags and bags of locally sourced and hand crafted goodies (more on that here), you can take a seat at this café come evening bar and perk yourself up with one of no less than TEN coffee inspired cocktails. TEN. We’re going to need more than one visit. We’re frothing at the sound of the Cherry Bomb, with coconut rum, cherry brandy, Bailys, espresso and coconut dust, but you might prefer a classic espresso martini made on one of Crafted Coffee Co.’s two signature blends. Got a sweet tooth? The vodka, Frangelico, espresso, salted caramel syrup and Violet Crumble number, quirkily named The Steve, has your name all over it. You can even pair your sip with a creamy cheese board, or some cheesy arancini balls from their tapas menu. But us you’ll find with an espresso martini in one hand and a wickedly indulgent affogato in the other – who needs sleep anyway? Find Crafted Coffee Co. very soon at The Kitchens, Robina Town Centre.
