About this Cocktail

Vodka Espresso is the foundational espresso martini created by Dick Bradsell, circa 1983. As its apocryphal origin story goes, it’s a little something to “wake you up and then f*ck you up!”

Ingredients:
  • 2 oz Vodka (I like Ketel One)
  • 1 oz fresh espresso (I like Intelligentsia Black Cat)
  • .5 oz coffee liqueur (usually Kahlua, but I also like St George NOLA Coffee Liqueur for a more complex cocktail)
  • .25 oz 1:1 simple syrup
Preparation:

1. Combine ingredients
2. Shake with ice
3. Strain into coupe
4. Garnish with 3 espresso beans
