What is the Espresso Martini Kit?

The Espresso Martini Kit by Cocktail Crates is more than a mere collection of ingredients; it's an experience waiting to unfurl in your kitchen. The kit includes:

  • 250ml of Premium Cold Brew Coffee: A smooth, rich base tailored for the perfect martini.
  • 100ml Absolut Vodka and 60ml Kahlua: These spirits provide the robust backbone of the cocktail.
  • 60ml Sugar Syrup: For that touch of sweetness to balance the bold flavours.
  • 30ml Frangelico: Introducing a hint of hazelnut that sets this kit apart from traditional recipes.
  • Coffee Beans: Not just for garnish, but to enhance aroma and give that professional finish.

Additionally, all the guesswork is removed with an easy-to-follow instruction card that ensures your cocktail is barista and bartender-approved every single time.


The Perfect Combination of Coffee and Cocktails:

The Espresso Martini is a testament to the magic that happens when coffee meets cocktail. Originally concocted in the late '80s by London bartender Dick Bradsell, this drink was a response to a model's request for something that could "wake her up." Today, the Espresso Martini remains a symbol of sophisticated energy, merging the world of espresso with that of spirits. With the rise of craft coffee culture, the drink has found new nuances, continually evolving with each mixologist's unique twist.
