We’ve got a bar classic for you that you can try out at home. The Espresso Martini was invented in 1983 in a London bar in Soho by bartender Dick Bradsell. Legend says that a famous top model asked the bartender for this cocktail.
Even there is no Martini in this cocktail, it is called Espresso Martini because it is served in a Martini glass.

Try out the recipe on your own and enjoy it!
