Utterly delicious. Utterly classy. Utterly caffeinated. The Espresso Martini is an eighties classic that packs a punch. 

Utterly delicious. Utterly classy. The story goes that the Espresso Martini was invented by the legendary Dick Bradsell in the eighties. A famous model (some speculate the model in question was Kate Moss, others say it was Naomi Campbell) walked up and asked him to mix her a drink that would, "Wake me up and then fuck me up". 

His solution (which we solute him for) was a combination of vodka, fresh, cold espresso, Kahlua and simple syrup, shaken into a frothy mix of bittersweet caffeinated addiction. 

Buy a round for your friends (even the one who pronounces it 'expresso').


2 Parts Absolut Vodka
1 Part Kahlua
1 Part Espresso Coffee (Cold)
