Canned and bottled craft cocktail company, Thomas Ashbourne Craft Spirits, has teamed with actor Neil Patrick Harris to release “The After Hours” Espresso Martini.
An elevated and smooth caffeinated cocktail, “The After Hours” Espresso Martini has been sustainably produced with all natural, premium craft vodka and rich flavours of espresso at 12% ABV.
Nico de Soto, the Creative Cocktail Director and Master Mixologist for Thomas Ashbourne worked closely with Harris and the brand on layering ingredients, coffee blends and spirits concentration to yield a buzzy yet elegant drink bursting with aromas of Arabica and extra dark roast espresso beans, hints of vanilla and rich dark chocolate.
“I love an espresso martini for its smooth and bold taste and its ability to be both sophisticated and the life of the party all at the same time…who wouldn’t want that?” says Harris. “I am excited to be partnering with Thomas Ashbourne; together, we worked hard to bring my favorite cocktail to life. After months of research, formulations and recipe revisions, I’m thrilled to finally share The After Hours Espresso Martini.”
Cara Kamenev, Thomas Ashbourne CEO, added, “We are thrilled to welcome Neil Patrick Harris to the Thomas Ashbourne family. An important part of our strategy is to introduce innovations driven by consumer demand, and as one of the fastest-growing cocktails in America, the Espresso Martini is just that. It has been a pleasure developing the flavour profile and personality of The After Hours alongside Neil, who is an iconic talent, a passionate and committed partner and who has a discerning palate for all things, especially cocktails. The result is a best-in-class, ready-to-sip Espresso Martini so good that even Sir Thomas Ashbourne himself would be proud.”
