Love a mean mojito just as much as a morning coffee? Ever tried a coffee cocktail? The alcohol-infused pick me ups are creating a real buzz in the cocktail world and, as such, are set to be one of 2015’s hottest drinks trends.

Coffee lovers and cocktail drinkers have always been on the hunt for the same thing – that little pick me up. So it was only inevitable that cocktail connoisseurs artfully combined the very best of both beverage worlds resulting in this latest cocktail trend. And just this week, we invited 32 bloggers to a fun coffee cocktail masterclass to sample the delights.

Revolutionary coffee

Held at the Revolution Bar in Newcastle, the event gave bloggers the chance to whip up some scrumptious coffee-infused cocktails. The workshop also marked the beginning of UK Coffee Week, a nationwide celebration of British coffee culture - coffee-tastic!

To kick-off the event, bloggers were treated to a tasting session of chilled espressos, coffee liqueurs and espresso-infused vodkas.

Give it a shot

Rory and Josh from Revolution were also on hand to show everyone how to make the delicious recipes. The best part? Enjoying the coffee creations at the end. And by the smiles all round, they didn’t disappoint.
