You Can Now Get Messina Cocktails Delivered To Your Door

It’s delicious and we deserve it.

Ice cream x booze—what could go wrong?

Nothing. The answer is nothing. It’s delicious and we deserve it.

We can all agree that lockdowns suck, especially as we were getting used to being out and about in cocktails bars with friends. But let’s remember that lockdown has brought out some creative delivery offers and this one may be our favourite yet.

In what can only be described as a quarantine miracle, Cocktail Porter have launched a concoction that is blurred somewhere between indulgent drink and dessert in collaboration with Messina.

Do the words Dulce De Leche Espresso Martini mean anything to you?

Completely dominating the status quo of all Espresso Martinis that have been slung before, this decadent concoction is created with premium vodka, combined with coffee liqueur, premium cold drip coffee, Messina’s famous Dulce De Leche Topping, and shaken hard to create that infamous foamy top. Finished with Messina Chocolate Hazelnut Spread and shaved coconut. In the chronicles of cocktail-making, this contender is an all-around heavyweight champion. We definitely recommend refills.

While the cocktail kit was originally reserved for Christmas-time, the boozie subscription service has decided to make hearts flutter and introduce these bad-boys as permanent fixtures.

The DIY cocktail kits, which are being delivered nationwide as of RIGHT NOW, come in two sizes: a mini kit creating 6 bar-style cocktails for just $85, and a large kit making 18 cocktails for just $149. Or for those who prefer to keep it steady, you can sign up to a subscription and have a kit delivered each month to your door and score a sweet discount. Each cocktail kit comes with all the premium ingredients you need to flex your mixologist skills.

What’s included in the Cocktail Kit:

  • Ketel One Vodka
  • Mr Black Liqueur
  • Cold Filter Coffee
  • Sugar Syrup
  • Messina Dulce De Leche Spread
  • Messina Chocolate Hazelnut Spread
  • Shaved Coconut
  • Step-by-step method card – see the Messina cocktail kit here.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
