Rugby World Cup - How to make a Springbok espresso martini!

Friday, 8 September, 2023

Its Rugby World Cup time and that means that for the next few weeks, people in rugby playing nations are going to be very focussed on France, the host country for the 2023 edition and loading up with their favourite snacks and beverages while inviting mates around to support their team. 

We have curated a coffee version to support our favourite team - The Springboks - and because most of the matches are in the evening, we have the perfect beverage to give your rugby supporter mates a kick of caffeine, booze and the patriotic good feels!

Introducing the Springbok Espresso martini!

Beware the Boks- and beware the epic party this beverage may cause!
