Looking for a pick me up during the lockdown?
The team at Yorkshire Bartender have provided us with a little shaken not stirred cocktail recipe for you to make at home - the Expresso Martini!
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 mess 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-flavoured 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.
- 25ml Espresso
- 10ml Vanilla syrup
- 25ml Mr Blacks Coffee Liquor or Kahlua
- 25ml Vodka
Combine all ingredients in a Cocktail Shaker (Boston Tin).
Firstly dry shake without ice, then add ice and shake again. Fine strain into a chilled martini glass.
