On March 15th, we celebrate the most buzzy cocktail in the game on World Espresso Martini Day. Without a doubt, the Espresso Martini has been one of the most talked about cocktails in recent memory and its popularity shows no sign of slowing. We teamed up with one of our favorite bar products, Mr Black Coffee Liqueur, to to raise the modern classic that evolved from the “Vodka Espresso” created by Dick Bradsel in the 1980s. Keep reading for our favorite Mr Black Espresso Martini recipe that was shared with us by Stephen Kurpinsky, US National Ambassador of Mr Black Spirits.
Find out why the Espresso Martini is the buzziest cocktail from Tom Baker, Founder of Mr Black Spirits
The Espresso Martini is popular where quality coffee is popular. So for the last decade it’s been pretty consistently popular in Sydney, Melbourne, London and so on. In the US it took a little longer. Prior to 2020, it was really just small pockets of Aussie and British expats in New York that were keeping the Espresso Martini alive in the US. In 2021, that all changed — and about time, too. The US has had an obsession with specialty coffee for the last five years, it was really only a matter of time.
