You can get a five-litre keg of espresso martini delivered straight to your door

Take my money!

Published

on

It turns out you really can get espresso martini on tap and at home. 

I don’t think there’s anything better than a huge five-litre barrel of your favourite cocktail to keep you company.

The concept comes from Giraffe Draught Cocktails, who make huge batches of the nation’s favourite cocktail and gives us lot the chance to have a huge keg in our house. 

The 5 litre Espresso Martini is made from a rich blend of cold brew espresso with premium vodka.

If you don’t fancy that, there’s also ‘Gin Garden’, a London dry gin cocktail mixed with the fruity aroma of fresh apple, a tart twist of rhubarb and a subtle taste of elderflower.

The classic Cosmopolitan cocktail is also available in keg form, made with citrus vodka, Triple Sec, cranberry juice and lime, as well as a Pornstar Martini keg.

Keep the mini keg in the fridge and simply pour out your cocktail. You can opt for shaking over ice for the ultimate cocktail making experience.

The kegs are advertised as the perfect gift for cocktail lovers and ideal for parties, but we all know you’re just gonna be tucking in for yourself (responsibly, of course).

The Espresso Martini kegs are a mix of very strong-tasting cold brew coffee, mixed with a sweet liqueur. It’s 11% abv and has 35 servings.

It will set you back £112 plus £4.99 for delivery – you can grab one here

This Manchester lad has made ‘sneaker candles’ and they look mint

I need some of these for my house

Crep Candle

This Manchester lad has made ‘sneaker candles’ and they’re as cool as they sound.

Crep Candle is the brainchild of 22-year-old Harvey Prince, who moved home after uni with a fantastically creative wax-based idea.

Harvey came up with the homeware idea in his final year of university, where he put plenty of time into researching moulds and candles all made from a different classic trainer. 

Fast forward to October 2020 and Harvey started actually making the candles, probably ruining his mam’s stove with melted wax and taking up tonnes of space.

But the hard work and clever idea paid off as Harvey sold out of his creations in just two days! 

One of his latest moulds based on the legendary Nike TN shoe has created tonnes of buzz on socials, meaning his followers have been on an upward slope.

Harvey and his photographer friend @joelhirstphoto who helps out with socials have been brainstorming over Christmas to step into 2021 with their best foot forward.

There are new drops every two weeks with this month seeing one of their most requested trainers becoming a candle – the Jordan 1.

Someone has created an almost impossible jigsaw puzzle and it’s perfect for lockdown!

If you’ve found yourself losing your mind in the third national lockdown because you’ve already mastered banana bread and completed all your other jigsaw puzzles, well this might just be the one for you.

Created by Etsy shop, Little Flower Pot Shop, the clear jigsaw comes in four sizes starting at an easy nine pieces going all the way up to 144 pieces. 

Now a 144 piece puzzle doesn’t sound too bad, until you find out this jigsaw not only doesn’t have a picture, each individual puzzle piece is completely clear.

The clear jigsaw puzzle also has an ‘Okay’ version complete with 25 pieces, while ‘Hard’ will see you scrambling to put together 49 pieces. 

Prices depend on which size you go for and think you can handle, starting at £14.65.

Alternatively, you can grab a bundle of all four sizes for £59.57, which will keep you busy enough to at least forget about Boris for a little while. 

One reviewer wrote: “Hardest puzzle ever!!! Straight lines on the inside is just evil. I finished in about 8 hours. Tediously.”

And a second described the puzzle as ‘challenging but not overwhelming’, whereas a third said ‘hardest puzzle ever‘.

You can get one here.
