If, as they say, life is all about balance, then the Espresso Martini might be the very embodiment of life itself. The lows and highs, the calm and excitement, the sweet and bitter, the darkness and light… all of these are delivered in a single (preferably ice-cold) martini glass.

A healthy dose of chilled espresso (bittersweet, bold, caffeinated, excitable), plus as much again of Ketel One Vodka (pure, elegant, smooth) and a little sugar syrup for balance – and the rest, they say, is history. Late 20th Century iconic drink history, that is.

1. First, prepare the fresh espresso

2. Add it to a cocktail shaker filled with ice along with the vodka, sugar syrup and Kahlua. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled coupette

3. Garnish with three coffee beans and serve immediately
