As we head into the busy silly season, many of us have many back-to-back parties, events and late nights. So, suffice it to say, most of us are not turning away those espresso martinis when they get handed to us. Thankfully, leading coffee-liqueur brand Jumping Goat has leapt into the Australian market in time for Christmas, with their simple 3-step Espresso ‘Martin-Easy’ recipe – allowing anyone to make a simple, but incredibly delicious espresso martini that can keep you dancing all season long.

Jumping Goat’s story begins in Ancient Ethiopia, with a goat herder named Kaldi. Legend has it that Kaldi’s goats loved munching berries, the kind that inexplicitly made them bounce about. Kaldi accidentally roasted the berries, and BANG, coffee was discovered. Fast forward a couple of thousand years, where a visionary from Kiwi-land had a dream to concoct a tasty elixir that would take inspiration from this story and create a modern-day pick-me-up…and thus, Jumping Goat’s Coffee Infused Liqueurs were born.

Created in 2013 and now distributed across 12 countries, Jumping Goat offers two unique coffee infused varietals in Australia, including the Jumping Goat Coffee Infused Vodka Liqueur and the Jumping Goat Coffee Infused Whisky Liqueur. Jumping Goat Liqueurs start by using 100% organic, batch-roasted coffee beans from Papua New Guinea before being mixed with a blend of spices and either pure, redistilled NZ whey vodka or a premium blended whisky…the result? Two handcrafted, high-quality coffee-liqueurs with vibrant and playful attitudes, just waiting to become your new late-night staple or essential cocktail ingredient.

The Jumping Goat’s ‘Martin-Easy’ will make hosting the Christmas festivities effortless, and need we have to say it, perfect for curbing those post-Christmas lunch nap cravings.
