Review:

The lovechild of Dick Bradsell's Espresso Martini and Tommy's Margarita.

History:

Perhaps better known by some as the Mexpresso Martini, this cocktail likely emerged in the mid-noughties in London. However, it was made famous when created and named the Mexican Jumping Bean by Richard Godwin of The Spirits fame. Here's how he tells the story:

"One afternoon a few years ago, I ran into my friends Cleo and Stewart in a bar near my old work in Kensington. Cleo and Stewart make Aqua Riva tequila for a living and I always had the impression they drank it for a living too - as it is generally impossible to spend more than three minutes in their company without a tray of Tommy's Margaritas arriving. We took up residence at a table. We drank Margaritas. And then some more. And after five or six, I felt the need to mix things up a bit. All that lime juice - I'm sure it was the lime juice - began to have a slightly pixelating affect. So I asked the bartender if he could make a Margarita with fresh espresso in place of the lime. The result was a Mexican take on the Espresso Martini."
