Created in ‘80s Soho, London, by cocktail legend Dick Bradsell, the legend goes that a delightful young lady (by the name of ‘Kate Moss’) entered his bar and asked Dick to make her a drink that would “wake me up and then fuck me up” at the same time. The Espresso Martini was the result.
If you’re looking for a pick-me-up, the Espresso Martini is here to jolt you awake with its boozy magical powers. The cold coffee-flavored cocktail is a sumptuous mix of vodka, coffee liquor and espresso that gets people giggling with excitement at its mere mention. It’s rich, indulgent and creamy, and the shot of espresso will make sure you keep up with the pack if you find yourself flagging.
