Surprise Supermarket Selling £9 Espresso Martini Cocktail Wows Shoppers


Hey savvy shoppers! If you're prepping for the festive season and love a good cocktail deal, here's a scoop for you! Waitrose, often perceived as a high-end supermarket, is currently offering a steal on Heston's Lazy Espresso Martini - a full 700ml bottle for just £9. This isn't just any cocktail; it's a blend described as "smooth, rich, and velvety," made with Falcon Specialty Coffee used at Heston’s The Fat Duck. Imagine serving this at your Christmas or New Year's bash with minimal effort – just shake, strain, and serve.

Here's where it gets more interesting. This deal was initially spotted by an amused shopper in the "Overheard In Waitrose" Facebook group, where the price drop from £25 to £9 caused quite a stir. The post garnered over 167 likes and nearly 100 comments, showing just how much buzz this deal has generated.

Now, let's talk comparisons. Tesco offers a smaller 500ml Tails Cocktails Espresso Martini for £12.50 (with a Clubcard), and Aldi has a 500ml salted caramel-flavored variant for £9.99. Clearly, Waitrose's offer trumps these in both price and volume.
