Legend has it that Soho Brasserie bartender Dick Bradsell invented this drink in the late 80s, for a model who waltzed into his bar and demanded something that would “wake me up, and then fuck me up.” Consider yourself warned!

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a few coffee beans, placed gently atop the foam.
