According to The Bottle Club, research on Google search data has shown that the Espresso Martini is the most popular cocktail in the United Kingdom, and was Googled some 118,000 times on average over the last month.
As such, it stands to reason that there is a veritable truckload of the coffee-based cocktails out there to try, and The Bottle Club thinks it’s high time someone was paid to do so.
Yes, you read that correctly: you can now get paid to drink Espresso Martinis.
According to a press release from the brand, “We will hire one individual to be an official taste tester over a three month period who will get to try out £500’s worth of espresso martinis around their city!”
The chosen candidate will rank a host of Espresso Martinis based on the following criteria:
- The flavour and strength ratio
- The appearance and garnish
- The value for money
- The quality of ingredients used
- Shaken or stirred
“Over a 3 month period, our chosen tester will taste cocktails from several top cocktail bars, until we have found the ultimate Espresso Martini!” The Bottle Club said on its website.
