Espresso Martini

The wake-up call among cocktails

The Espresso Martini was invented in the 80s by bartender Dick Bradsell in a bar in Soho, London. According to the bartender's stories, a young, now world-famous model came to Dick's bar and asked for a drink "who will wake me up and f* me up". Dick Bradsell then created a creamy and tasty combination of ingredients that still keeps the guests awake and the mood high at many parties today.






First brew the double espresso (e.g. using the ECM CASA V Starter Kit)

Pour into a barshaker vodka, the Polar syrup and finally the coffee. Add a few ice cubes and shake the shaker vigorously for a minute.

Pour the liquid without ice into a martini glass and finally place three coffee beans on top of the foam as decoration.
