Interested in history?

In 1983 a lady entered the Freds Club in London. She was looking for a special drink that she described in English as "Something that wakes me up and then fucks me up". Dick Bradsell (Cocktail Legend) saw some coffee beans roaming the bar and immediately knew what to do. The option to use vodka was also self-evident as it was the most drunk at the time. He then added some sweetness to this, and so the Espresso Martini was born.

Make a real impression? Check out these tips!

Tip 1. Hold a sieve above the glass before pouring the mix into the Martini glass, this will give the drink a wonderfully perfect foam layer.

Tip 2. Use a freshly brewed espresso and let it cool down before you add it to the shaker. This ensures a better taste and because you let it cool down, the ice in the shaker doesn't melt immediately.

Tip 3. Cool the Martini glass in advance. You can do this by briefly putting it in the freezer. Or by letting it cool down beforehand with some ice cubes.

Tip 4. The drink does not have to be shaken too hard in the shaker, if you do this, then a dirty foam will form in your mix. And you don't want that.
