Espresso – your Winter survival (and cocktail) kit

Espresso – your Winter survival (and cocktail) kit

What could be better than combining two of the things we love most – wine and coffee (in no particular order, of course)? Not much … which is why we’re mad about De Krans Original Espresso – port and coffee all in one bottle.

Although there are no actual coffee beans used, the coffee taste is right up there … the result of maturing the wine in heavy toasted oak. This dessert wine has a smooth palate with flavours of dried fruit, prunes and cacao. It’s not overly sweet and stays on trend with the drier style that is synonymous with the De Krans port-style wines. In summer, we drank it chilled, now the winter chills set it, serve it with a crème brûlée, or other sweet desserts. Or why not try it as an Espresso Martini … really lovely end to a meal.

Simply mix 3 parts De Krans Original Espresso, one part cold espresso and one part vodka in a cocktail shaker, give it a good shake and then strain into a martini glass. Garnish with coffee beans and enjoy!

The De Krans Original Espresso comes in a cute and convenient 375ml bottle and sells for around R79 per bottle.  Details:
