Tia Maria is launching ‘Express’o’ Yourself’ bars at all Moonlight Cinema venues across Australia this summer, offering the opportunity for guests to personalise their cocktails with the ultimate trimmings.
The Tia Maria ‘Express’o’ Yourself’ bar allows guests to create bespoke cocktails, choosing to either top the traditional Espresso Martini with Crushed Maltesers, Popcorn, Freeze Dried Raspberries or Marshmallows. Also on the menu are new ‘Shaken not Stirred’ Tia Maria shakes. Among these shakes, the ‘One Flew Over The Cookies Nest’ contains an old favourite, cookies and cream, while the ‘You Had Me At Marshmallow’ has a toasted marshmallow taste.
The classic Affogato has also made an appearance on the menu, containing Tia Maria, espresso and ice cream.
Guests who purchase ‘Gold Grass’ tickets can simply order their cocktails using a QR code on their table in Gold Grass and have them delivered straight to their comfy bean beds at Moonlight Cinema. They can also take their evening up a notch with the Platinum Experience, which includes: two tickets to a selected session, a double bean bed situated in an exclusive area with prime viewing, wait service, a deluxe food and drinks package for two and two Tia Maria blankets to take home.
Among the lineup of newly released blockbuster films screening at Moonlight Cinema over summer are Tenet, Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, Moonlight Cinema is sure to have a film for everyone. In addition, Christmas classics are on the schedule for December, with special screenings of Love Actually, ELF, The Grinch, Home Alone and The Nightmare Before Christmas.
The full program can be viewed on the Moonlight Cinema website.
Tia Maria’s ‘Express’o’ Yourself’ bar will be popping up all over the nation at Moonlight Cinema in Sydney (Centennial Parklands), Brisbane (Roma Street Parkland), Melbourne (Royal Botanic Gardens), Adelaide (Royal Botanic Gardens) and Perth (Kings Park) over the next few months.
Drinks Digest was a guest at the Sydney Moonlight Cinema experience last year for a screening of Love Actually, which is always a crowd pleaser, especially when matched with Espresso Martinis.
Here’s a bit of trivia for you: the original Espresso Martini was invented in the early 80’s in London by a bloke called Dick Bradsell. According to legend, a supermodel walked into his bar and asked for something that would “wake her up and mess her up,” and so the Espresso Martini was born.
