Get your coffee fix with a twist

Ahh... the delicious afternoon pick me up - the supreme Espresso Martini. The original Espresso Martini recipe was developed using a coffee liqueur such as Kahlua or Tia Maria mixed with an espresso shot and vodka. The result is a delicious, creamy and decadent cocktail for the caffeine lover. Legend has it the espresso martini was invented by the famous late London bartender, Dick Bradsell, at the request of a super model wanting something of a pick-me-up. In more recent times, the espresso martini has become increasingly popular and definitely a trendy addition to your cocktail repertoire. However, our favourite is an even more luxurious twist with the Baileys Espresso Martini - swap the coffee liqueur out for the rich creaminess of Baileys Irish Cream.
