Kahlua launches Espresso Martini in a can

There’s nothing like an espresso martini to get you in the mood for a night out and now you can enjoy the iconic cocktail from the comfort of your own home this weekend.

UK supermarket Waitrose are stocking cans of Kahlua Espresso Martini for just £1.90 each.

The Pernod Ricard-owned brand has installed a ‘smart’ nitrogen widget to bring bubbles to the surface as soon as the can has been opened to recreate the creamy foam of an Espresso Martini. Once opened, imbibers should wait 20 seconds for the crema to set.

The ‘unique’ packaging is thought to be the first of its kind for the RTD cocktail market.

It contains Kahlua – a coffee-flavoured liqueur from Mexico – as well as coffee and vodka.

A 250ml can is filled with 200ml of liquid, leaving 50ml for the layer of foam. So when you pour the drink into a glass it will look just like a cocktail you could have ordered at the bar.

The Kahlúa Espresso Martini is available in two different abv versions – 4.5% and 7%.
