You heard right, an entire festival dedicated to the greatest caffeinated cocktail out there. 

Let's be honest, we've all had those days where we wish we could slip something a bit stronger into our morning coffee, well now your wish is coming true—kind of. This November, coffee-liqueur company, Mr. Black, is catering to all you coffee-and-liquor-loving Melbournians with an entire day dedicated to the Espresso Martini. 

The festival will run from 2pm to 10 pm on the 5th of November and will feature coffee from the likes of likes of Rushmore, Campos Coffee, Coast Cold Brew, First Press Coffee, Two Birds Brewing and Ketel One. There will be 8 different martinis to try, a cocktail making class and several games of “coffee pong” (which should be interesting).

There will also be caffeinated creations from some of the best bars and coffee shops around Australia as well as food trucks, live music, classes and tutorials. Tickets are $25 (+ bf) and will snag you a Mr Black Espresso Martini, a tasting of Mr Black Cold Press Coffee Liqueur and heaps of tastings from other coffee producers in Australia.

Tickets are limited though and its first in best dressed so make sure to grab yours quick.
