Espresso Martini Recipe

The Espresso Martini is such an elegant and stylish looking cocktail. It was first created in the '80s in London when an American model walked up to the bar, asking the bartender for something to wake her up. The dark brown colour with the lightweight crema sitting on top garnished with coffee beans; you can't go wrong with it. This cocktail is easy to make and just requires three ingredients. The top tip for making this one, shake the cocktail shaker more vigorously than usual to achieve that frothy 'crema' on top.
