If you don’t have a cocktail making kit, you can still make a delicious Espresso Martini. Here are a few words of wisdom from our garage-bar tenders:

  • You can replace a cocktail shaker with any Tupperware with an air-tight lid - you just need to be able to shake without any spills.
  • Egg cups, shot glasses and lids make great jiggers.
  • A sieve will serve as a good strainers, but they may look a little comedic.
  • Ice is actually really important, never skip out on the ice.


On to the good bit.

What you’ll need:


How to make:

  • Add the vodka, coffee, sugar syrup and ice to your shaker
  • Shake vigorously to ensure foam at the top. If it’s too liquidy, shake again. Frosting on the outside of your shaker is a good indication that you’ve been shaking hard enough. 
  • Strain
  • Garnish with coffee beans

Can you make Espresso Martini with Baileys?

Our signature Espresso Martini is made with vodka, but we love to put a twist on a classic - you can use Baileys to make a creamier Espresso Martini - just swap out 20ml of vodka with 20ml Baileys and you’re good to go.
