Brew & Brew Cocktails for Coffee Week

9 April 2014

It’s National Coffee Week, which means we’re indulging in endless cups of coffee, not feeling at all guilty about it.

Coincidentally, this week is also the launch of our brand spanking new restaurant and bar, CORE. Situated in the City CORE is also home to luxury coffee and Kraft Beer menu, Brew & Brew, which not only serves a selection of high-end coffees but has its own cocktail menu featuring and exciting mix of their delicious coffee and beer.

The best thing about these expertly crafted coffee cocktails is they’re super easy to recreate at home, so if you’re entertaining friends, copy the Coco Frappe cocktail for a drink which will take you back to lying on a beach in the blazing heat or try the Michalada for something to impress the guests.
