Espresso Martini

If you’re looking for a pick-me-up post-dinner, the Espresso Martini is here to jolt you awake with its boozy magical powers. The story goes that the famous Espresso Martini cocktail was created in the 80s in Soho, London. The confusing combination of coffee and vodka is surprisingly delicious. To achieve this delicious little devil, it is important to use a good quality espresso shot.
