Review:

Forget the 'Vodka Red Bull', this is the cocktail connoisseur's way of combining caffeine and vodka.

Variant:

Some prefer the simpler equal parts version of the Espresso Martini but we think our recipe a tad more balanced. However, depending on your coffee liqueur and /or palate, you want to add 2.5ml to 5ml sugar syrup to our recipe.

History:

Created by the legendary Dick Bradsell in 1983, you can read the full story behind this popular cocktail, much of it in Dick's own words, on our Espresso Martini encyclopedia page.
