Espresso martini

August 21, 2016 by Robbie Stowe

Background

The cocktail was invented by the legendary Dick Bradsell in the Eighties after, legend has it, a famous model asked him to mix her a drink that would “wake me up, then f**k me up.” I understand the point of the drink; you get to a stage in the evening where having drunk a voluminous amount, you feel that bed might not be such a bad idea but you want to play through. What better than more vodka, with the addition of a caffeine booster? Love it or hate it it’s here to stay.

15ml Kahlua
