The Icepresso Martini, to Wake you Up, Fuck You Up and Chill You Up
While we already know the Espresso Martini, I decided to make you a recipe a bit of my own to fight the heat that is raging right now, the Icepresso Martini.
But what is the Icepresso Martini?
While it is said that according to legend, the young model who asked for this cocktail, the Espresso martini, wanted something that: “Wake me up and fuck me up” (Wake me up and fuck me up), I would say for This one, Wake me up, fuck me up and chill me up. Why “Chill Me Up”, because we add ice cream, yes yes, as simple as that, a bit like an affogato, but cold.
New low calorie ice cream by Ben & Jerry’s in the Icepresso Martini
While a cocktail is still quite high in calories, I decided to add an ice cream, which is low in calories, that of Ben & Jerry’s new Moo-phoria range. The latter, for a portion of half a cup, comprises between 150 and 170 calories and up to 60% less fat than traditional ice cream. For those who are more environmentally friendly, the ice cream is Fairtrade certified. You can also choose from 3 flavors: chocolate milk and biscuits, caramel and biscuits, and peanut butter paste. I tried the recipe only with the first flavor, the only one of 150 calories, but it is surely delicious with the other two.
A new bottle for Gray Goose in collaboration with Maison Labiche
Summer is the time to live victoriously. To celebrate all the moments, big and small, the most important of the season, Gray Goose has teamed up with the Parisian brand Maison Labiche to create emblematic articles reserved for the winners. To mark their joint venture of limited edition bottles, the third installment of a limited series of the brand dedicated to the Côte d’Azur, Gray Goose and Maison Labiche launch the “Riviera capsule collection”.
This collaboration is all the more cemented by the French heritage that brands share, and their absolute commitment to uniqueness and authentic style. The famous beach of Pampelonne on the Côte d’Azur inspired the original wave pattern that displays the bottle. The items in the capsule collection, designed to get married to the best moments, are inspired by summer festivities such as weekend getaways or beach days.
