Espresso Martini


A post dinner delightful cocktail that's both a pick-me-up and a sophisticated indulgence.

If you're seeking a post-dinner energizer, the Espresso Martini is here to rouse you with its spirited enchantment. Since its introduction in the 1980s, this cocktail has been reinvigorating evenings and extending nights.

The iconic drink was crafted by British bartender Dick Bradsell at Fred's Club in London. The legend goes that a "top model" requested a libation that could both "wake me up and liven me up" simultaneously. Bradsell obliged, blending vodka with espresso and coffee liqueur, and thus, the Espresso Martini came into existence.

37.5ml Vodka

12.5ml Coffee Liqueur

50ml Espresso
