A Perfect Shot

Today marks the beginning of UK Coffee Week™, the nation’s biggest celebration of coffee. Ever since England became acquainted with the brew during the 17th Century, it has formed an integral part of our culture. Whilst coffee may not technically be essential to living, it plays a very important role in many peoples’ lives, ours most definitely included.

At Bel & The Dragon, we are proud to work with coffee connoisseur, Lavazza, who have been pioneering the industry for over 120 years. According to Lavazza, quality is built rather than controlled. It is an active process that involves everybody, an intrinsic part of every phase of production. Put simply, it is the only way of working that they know. Values we respect & share at Bel & The Dragon.

What better way to celebrate Britain’s coffee culture than with the ultimate Espresso Martini. We have spent many years perfecting the recipe and the result is a gloriously rich, creamy & high energy-boosting cocktail. Sipsmith vodka is superb and blends harmoniously with the other ingredients. Try our recipe for yourself at home or let us make it for you. The coffee never runs dry at Bel & The Dragon…
