Espresso Martini is a coffee-flavored cocktail traditionally made with vodka, espresso coffee, and coffee liqueur. This bittersweet martini with its velvety texture and robust coffee flavor has taken over all our cravings and even earned its very special day on March 15th. Take a look at the best Espresso Martinis on the market and where lovers of this trendy cocktail can grab them.
Deer Path Inn – Lake Forest, Illinois
Deer Path Inn serves new Nespresso Martini which can also easily be recreated by home bartenders. The drink features a mix of Kettle One vodka, Mr. Black Coffee, Woodford Reserve Bourbon, a shot of espresso, and four drops of saline solution. Enjoy as a nightcap with a piece (or two!) of chocolate at the end of a long day.
The Sylvester – Miami, Florida
If you want to taste a tropical take on the Espresso Martini, order the “Que Lo Que” served at The Sylvester in Miami. This unique recipe mixes Brugal 1888, a premium rum produced in the Dominican Republic, with orgeat, saline, cold brew concentrate made from Dominican coffee beans and Mr. Black Cold Brew Liqueur. The pineapple Greek yogurt adds acidity, creaminess, and a subtle tropical flavor, pairing wonderfully with the prominent wood influence in Brugal 1888.
PROPER in Fort Worth, Texas
As one of Fort Worth’s chicest cocktail bars on the buzzy Magnolia Avenue, PROPER offers a special menu dedicated entirely to espresso-tinis, with unusual twists that use cold brew for a kick of caffeine paired with unique ingredients, as seen in the earthy Gin-Spresso, which features a rosemary and tarragon simple syrup.
