If you're a fan of cocktails that keep you upright, no doubt you’re a regular espresso martini slurper - and you’re gonna love our 5 best espresso martini recipes! Creamy, delicious and loaded with the good stuff (coffee, duh!), espressos are a fave late night cocktail in our books too. 

 Originating from Soho in London, the 1980s saw a new little devil on the drinks list - The almighty espresso martini.  And while the early days of espresso martinis didn’t stray too far from the traditional variety, now there are a whole selection of interesting and delicious espressos that you can even make yourself.

 Here we’ll share with you our five favourite espresso martini recipes that you can make at home with your Premiato Coffee Beans!


 Now let’s get to the good stuff.


Traditional Espresso Martini

How could we leave this little baby off the list?  After all, she’s to thank for the variety of recipes that followed in her footsteps.


50ml Vodka

35ml Coffee Liqueur

1 Shot of Premiato Espresso


Coffee Beans (to garnish)


Firstly, fill your martini glass and cocktail shaker with ice. 

Then pour your vodka, coffee and espresso into your cocktail shaker. 

Get shaking, empty your glass of ice and pour in your mix (FYI, follow this cooling procedure for each cocktail). Top with 3 coffee beans if you have them handy and prepare yourself for the best traditional espresso martini you’ve ever had!
