ESPRESSO MARTINI COCKTAIL

ABOUT THE ESPRESSO MARTINI COCKTAIL

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up post-dinner, the Espresso Martini is here to jolt you awake with its boozy magical powers. The cold coffee-flavored cocktail mixes vodka with espresso coffee, coffee liqueur (usually Kahlúa) and simple syrup. Garnish with a few coffee beans, and it’s picture perfect.

British bartender Dick Bradsell invented this now-classic drink, a.k.a. the Vodka Espresso, at Fred’s Club in London in the late ’80s. Legend has it that Kate Moss asked for a drink that would “wake me up and then fuck me up” at the same time, and the Espresso Martini was the result.
