Espresso Martini | Cocktail Party

Espresso Martini

Legend has it that Soho Brasserie bartender Dick Bradsell invented this drink in the late 80s, for a model who waltzed into his bar and demanded something that would “wake me up, and then fuck me up.” Consider yourself warned!

Real espresso is ideal – regular drip coffee is simply too weak and watery to provide the strong backbone this drink requires.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a few coffee beans, placed gently atop the foam.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
