Espresso Martini

Ingredients

It’s last call and you’re looking for a cocktail that will give you a “pick-me up” – the Espresso Martini is the perfect drink. This cocktail was invented by British bartender Dick Bradsell at Fred’s Club in London. Story goes that Kate Moss asked for a drink that would “wake me up and then f**k me up” at the same time. Bradsell complied, mixing vodka with espresso and coffee liqueur, and that was how the Espresso Martini was born.

  • 1 1/2 oz Vodka
  • 3/4 oz Coffee Liqueur
