Drink This Now: Twisted Espresso Martini with Saint Luna Moonshine

Looking to give your coffee cocktail an upgrade? It’s time to try the Twisted Espresso Martini, made with Saint Luna Moonshine, coffee liqueur, Baileys Irish Cream, espresso and a dash of CBD.

The world’s first ultra-premium, charcoal-filtered moonshine, Saint Luna, was created in 2018 by entrepreneur David Suk from a recipe refined over 15 years. Saint Luna Moonshine is handcrafted in small batches from high-grade molasses and locally-sourced rye with the purest of water—and then finished with charcoal filtration to remove any impurities.

Suk’s budding craft spirits company has been steadily expanding its distribution throughout the country’s East Coast and beyond. Currently, Saint Luna is the exclusive moonshine at Bergdorf Goodman’s luxury department stores,  Employees Only and Jean Georges’ Nougatine, in New York City and Virgin Hotel, in Nashville, TN.

At 50% ABV, crystal-clear Saint Luna Moonshine is an overproof spirit, yet, so smooth that it could be enjoyed on the rocks or mixed into just about any cocktail -such as their “twist” on the classic Espresso Martini.  The extra boozy Twisted Espresso Martini is an exceptional treat, and a perfect cocktail for the Holiday season.

“I enjoy how incredibly smooth Saint Luna Moonshine is and how easily you can sip it on ice.  The molasses gives Saint Luna a bit of grassiness, caramel and vanilla, while the rye we use gives it a pepper and a spice.  We use charred oak to filter Saint Luna, lending a subtle smokiness to the finish.  These unique, delicate and versatile flavors make Saint Luna the perfect base for creating the perfect cocktail.  So whether you are making an old fashioned with Saint Luna or a daiquiri, both taste absolutely amazing.”, said David Suk, CEO and Founder of Saint Luna Spirits.
