This cocktail was was invented in London way back in the 1980’s by a bartender named Dick Bradsell. Word on the street is Bradsell created the drink which was originally called The Vodka Espresso then the Pharmaceutical Stimulant when a young model bellied up to the bar and asked for something to “wake me up and f**k me up.” And the rest is history.
