As the days draw in and we head into the festive season, it’s time to find a drink that is warming, delicious and party ready. This month we throw the spotlight on our Sweet Potato Espresso Rum Liqueur, a drink that delivers on all of these factors. If you want to know what it tastes like, what to serve it in and how to make an alternative rum espresso martini, please read on as we reveal all about this after dinner winner. 

When to serve Espresso Rum

Picture this. You’ve just finished a delicious meal around the table with friends or family. The plates are empty, the appetites are nicely sated, but you’re just looking for that special something to round off the perfect feast. Served neat, our Espresso Rum Liqueur is ideal as an after dinner digestif. Sip slowly to enjoy the sweetness of our handpicked sweet potatoes and the aroma of the five different types of arabica coffee beans, before the warmth of English rum kicks in.

If you want to know what to expect from the experience we suggest you imagine the tastes of cracked caramel Christmas cake fused with vanilla and the spicy tobacco scent of a good cup of coffee. 

This rum liqueur doesn't just work perfectly as an after dinner drink; you can also serve it  over ice, topped up with cream soda and a slice of ginger for a refreshing early evening tot.

If you’re feeling adventurous you could mix up our Sweet Potato Espresso Rum Liqueur into a long drink or cocktail, but we believe the best way to appreciate this versatile drink is neat, or on the rocks.

The easy way to the perfect Rum Espresso Martini

At The Sweet Potato Spirit Company we offer two fantastic ways to enjoy a twist on the classic espresso martini:

  1. Put the Vodka back on the shelf, pour 50ml of our Sweet Potato Spiced Rum with a 25-50ml strong espresso shot and 20ml of Kahlua or coffee liqueur. Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass, garnish with coffee beans.
  2. The easy way – if you haven’t got a fully stocked bar at home simply open a bottle of our Sweet Potato Espresso Rum Liqueur and pour into a cocktail or coupe glass with some cubed ice. Serve with a shaving of orange peel and you’ve got yourself the quickest twist on this classic.
