If you’ve ever had an espresso martini before (or avoided them all together) our recipe will change your perception. Brought to us by NYC-baced Cocktail Enthusiast and Amateur Home Bartender Alex Miller, this take on the classic Espresso Martini is a “Simple riff that uses fresh espresso, Kahlúa, and some Whitney Neill gin, which adds beautiful floral and bright herbal notes to this cocktail,” he tells us.

“The overall mix is bold and boozy but has a delicious smoothness and sweetness that really makes this a treat, and the combo of quality gin and coffee is absolutely spectacular.”
