13-03-2018 Coffee recipes

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.

We recommend to use the Big Shot Coffee Beans or, if you prefer capsules, Enigma will give this cocktail a very unique flavour.

Happy Drinking!
