Little Friday – ‘Pepernoot’ Martini
“Espresso martinis, because no one should have to choose between coffee and alcohol at the moment.”
EAST is like coming home. Coming home from a hectic day. ‘Cause at EAST it’s time for you. So sit back and have a nice cocktail. Or three.
Thursdays we think are special. Because on Thursday evening your weekend starts with us. And we are not quite fuzzy about that. That’s why we spotlight one cocktail every Thursday evening for only €5!
On Thursday December 1 it’s up to the ‘Pepernoot’ Martini. You can just walk in to have a cocktail in EAST, without making a reservation.
About the ‘Pepernoot’ Martini:
On December 5th it’s the typical Dutch Sinterklaas evening. And to get in that warm, winter, cozy mood, we made a Sinterklaas cocktail special. De ‘Pepernoot’ Martini!
A ‘pepernoot’ is a Dutch treat we enjoy during Sinterklaas times. It’s a kind of small cookie – actually made to hand out to kids – full of warm spices. Flavors which will not misfit with the comfort of a classic espresso martini. We made our own pepernoot or ‘speculaas’ liqueur with a base of vodka and various spices. We mix this with coffee liqueur, espresso and shake it until it’s nice and silky smooth. A heart warming cocktail, perfect for a chilly December evening.
Cheers to Sint!
