In celebration of the new Nespresso Prodigio, a coffee machine you can control with your phone, we were invited to an amazing five course sensory dining experience by Currys at the G&V Royal Mile Hotel in Edinburgh. Inspired by the evening, we've whipped up the fastest and easiest Espresso Martini recipe for #CraftyInTheCity.

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Nespresso Sensory Dining Experience with #CoffeewithCurrys and Joe Blogs at the G&V Royal Mile Hotel in Edinburgh.
It was then time for dinner and we were lead through to the dining room where blindfolds were waiting for us.
The first course was a taste test, so with blindfolds in place, our starter was served as we tried our best not to make a mess.
Not knowing what we were eating was a little daunting and I'd guessed it was some kind of cold ravioli until I removed my blindfold to find buffalo mozzarella with a coffee bean jus.
Each of the five courses were made with Nespresso, including a coffee risotto, fish or meat served with coffee custard triangles, a Nespresso panna cotta for dessert and coffee truffles to finish.
After dinner, we were treated to cocktails and there was a raffle where we won a Nespresso coffee maker for sharing the best tweet.
