An elegant choice for the evening, Ketel One vodka shaken with a velvety smooth espresso shot.

History

A rich and creamy cocktail comprising vodka, espresso, sugar syrup and coffee liqueur, all served up in a Martini glass! The history of this drink is comparatively new, believed to be the creation of London bartender Dick Bradsel in the early 80s. Cocktail legend has it that a young, future supermodel sidled up to the bar and asked Dick to make her a cocktail that would help wake her up. He mixed up a drink using vodka and a shot of espresso pulled from the coffee machine next to his station and the Espresso Martini (originally “Vodka Espresso”) was born.
