Espresso Martini | Cocktail Party

Espresso Martini

Espresso Martini with vodka and coffee liqueur

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

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
