Monin Lotus: Biscuits with espresso cocktails
Those moreish little biscuits usually served with coffee are finding their way into the cocktail market.

Owner Lotus Biscoff has joined forces with Monin, the syrup and cocktail mixer brand, to create a twist on coffee cocktails, which are booming following the popularity of espresso martinis.

The companies are recommending using the biscuits in combination with Monin coffee-infused flavours, using the sweet treats not just on the side but in cocktails too.

Recipes include the Lotus Biscoff Butterbeer, a blend of Biscoff spread, Monin Speculoos Syrup, salted caramel vodka, cream & cream soda.

Monin’s UK brand ambassador, James Coston, said: “Lotus Biscoff spread is the perfect partner for a range of Monin products, enabling bartenders to create delicious, inventive winter cocktails that customers will love.

"It complements the Monin Speculoos syrup particularly well as it contains many of the same delicious caramelised cinnamon and ginger notes – making the Lotus Biscoff Butterbeer recipe a surefire winner.”
