Cocktail Description

A cocktail lover’s classic that needs little introduction, the Espresso Martini is a truly elegant choice for luxurious pre-dinner or post-dinner sipping. Our NIO spin on this beloved cocktail marries silky smooth Ketel One Vodka with Borghetti Espresso Liqueur to create a thoroughly indulgent drink. Boasting rich, dark roasted coffee notes lifted by a slightly honeyed creaminess from the vodka and an unctuous texture, this Espresso Martini is a sumptuous choice for the discerning cocktail drinker.

Espresso Martini History

A cocktail known by many names throughout its history, the origins of the Espresso Martini will remain the stuff of myth and legend for years to come. The story goes that one day a young supermodel sidled up to Dick Bradsell’s bar at the Soho Brasserie and requested a pick-me-up cocktail with coffee…although her exact words were a little different! Mixing the now infamous drink with vodka, coffee liqueur, a shot of espresso and a little sugar, the Espresso Martini was thus born. The cocktail’s name may have changed through Dick’s bartending history (the 'Pharmaceutical Stimulant' is our personal favourite), but the iconic combination of vodka and coffee has remained the same since its inception.
