Rich and creamy, this cocktail has been invented back in the 1980s by the British bartending genius Dick Bradsell and quickly became an iconic drink. No wonder- boozy and refreshing, an Espresso Martini is a delicious drink, giving you both the cool down and the energy kick that you need.
Read on to find our quick, easy-to-make recipe which is oh, so delicious! How couldn’t it be? With your favourite coffee and something little stronger as a pairing you’re in for a treat. But who said we couldn’t indulge a bit?
Ingredients you need to make an Espresso Martini:
- 30ml Coffee Liqueur (e.g.Tia Maria or Kahlua)
- 30ml vodka
- 30ml espresso (We like to use our Big Shot)
- 20ml sugar syrup (if you like it sweeter)
- Ice cubes
- Coffee beans to garnish
- A glass (better if you have a Martini one)
- A shaker
How to make it?
Here’s some (even more) good news: Espresso Martini is very easy to make! Just mix all the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and shake it, oooh, shake it, shake it for 30 seconds.
Strain into a Martini glass- there should be a nice froth on top, created by the natural oils in the espresso. Garnish with 3 coffee beans (one for health, one for strengh and one for happiness) and you’re ready to go! It’s bitter, it’s sweet, it’s boozy – you’re going to love it!
The secret? Brew it fresh!
The secret to make a delicious Espresso Martini… Is a freshly brewed espresso. To get the divine result, don’t use a previously brewed coffee; prepare your espresso right before making the cocktail and you’ll be rewarded.
