Gelato Messina has gone into cahoots with Cocktail Porter and released two cocktail kits that we reckon will keep us going till Christmas. The kits combine Messina's gelato and spreads with booze – and the cocktails are a breeze for even the most novice of mixmasters to put together.
The Dulce de Leche Espresso Martini combines vodka with coffee liqueur, cold-drip coffee and Messina's dulce de leche topping, finished with a a slick of choc-hazelnut spread sprinkled with coconut on the rim. The Coconut and Lychee Giña Colada, meanwhile, brings gin into the Piña Colada mix, with a combination of Tanqueray gin, coconut water, pineapple juice, verjuice and Messina coconut and lychee gelato (those who buy this kit will receive a gelato voucher to redeem at their nearest Messina store).
The kits comes in mini (six serves) and large (18 serves) sizes.
