There have been many people who have claimed the honour of originally creating this drink but we believe the credit goes to Dick Bradsell who revolutionised the cocktail scene in London in the 1980s.
He created this Espresso Martini recipe - originally called Vodka Espresso, then Pharmaceutical Stimulant - at Fred's Club in the late 1980s when a young model, who Bradsell claims is now world famous, sidled up to the bar and asked for something to 'wake me up and f**k me up'
Our Espresso Martini recipe uses premium vodka, coffee liqueur and espresso made from the finest Brazilian coffee beans.
Choose from 1x litre bottle with 10 servings or 6x individual bottles of 100ml with our Mix of Six!
Each serve is 19% ABV which is what you would expect to find in a top quality bar.
1. Shake the bottle briefly to make sure the natural ingredients haven't separated.
2. Pour 100ml of your Sunset Cocktails Espresso Martini into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well for 25-30 seconds.
3. Pour your now chilled cocktail through a strainer into a martini glass.
4. For the full effect, gently drop 3 whole coffee beans on top of the foam to finish the cocktail.
