Sip of the Month: Espresso Martini

The espresso martini is the retro drink we’re craving right now.
Look at a cocktail list lately and is that… an Espresso Martini? It most certainly is. The caffeinated retro classic invented by Dick Bradsell in late 1980s is currently topping popular cocktail charts this year and we have the perfect recipe.

Espresso Martini Recipe

Serves 1


2 oz. vodka
1 oz. coffee liquor
1 oz. espresso (or cold brew coffee concentrate)
1/2 oz. simple syrup

Coffee beans, for garnish (optional)



In a cocktail shaker, one-half full of ice, combine the vodka, coffee liquor, espresso and simple syrup. Shake very well, until a layer of foam develops on the surface of the liquid.

Pour into a chilled coupe or martini glass and top with 3 coffee beans to garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.
