A brief history of the Espresso Martini...
According to legend, the Espresso Martini was first created in Soho, London, after a supermodel requested a drink that would wake her up for a long night of partying! The bartender combined vodka and coffee liquor with a shot of espresso - and the cocktail was born! Since that day back in the 1980s, the Espresso Martini has become a mainstay of cocktail bars around the world, sitting alongside its sister cocktails the Pornstar Martini, French Martini and Dirty Martini.
Rich, creamy, sophisticated, and packed full of liquor - the Espresso Martini is a drink that provides a texture, taste, and a kick that is unrivalled by its sister martini drinks.
The Espresso Martini is as versatile as it is delicious - whether it's a late night pick-me-up at a cocktail party, a substitute for a Bloody Mary at a boozy brunch, or even a luxurious digestif after a scrumptious meal - the Espresso Martini ticks all the boxes.
If you haven't experienced the Espresso Martini before, then you are in for a treat! Vodka and coffee may not feel like the perfect pairing, but we guarantee once they are shaken together over ice and served in a martini glass, this drink will become a firm favourite!
Simply put, the Espresso Martini will keep the conversation going at any situation, and deserves to be a regular in your cocktail cabinet.
