Ketel One Espresso Martini

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.

If, as they say, life is all about balance, then the Espresso Martini might be the very embodiment of life itself.

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
