Blue Duck Espresso Martini Cocktail Recipe

Espresso Martini Cocktail Recipe

Created by the legendary mixologist Dick Bradsell in 1983 whilst working at the Soho Brasserie, the Espresso Martini is without doubt the best-known modern classic cocktail.

Asked by a customer for a drink to, 'wake her up and fuck her up" Dick was standing next to the coffee machine and went to work on what is now a cocktail found in every bar across the globe.

Originally called a Vodka Espresso and served in a martini class, Dick soon changed the title to an Espresso Martini to reflect the 80's trend of martinis being the go-to drink amongst trendy bar types.

You'll need to use fresh hot espresso if you want to get the creamy foam top, let the espresso cool and you'll lose the crema and your coffee cocktail will look like a damp biscuit.

Parent to a hundred twisted Espresso Martinis, you can play with ingredients until the cows come home, but our recipe is as simple as. If you want to add a vanilla hint, try adding half a teaspoon of vanilla paste.
