The Espresso Martini is a cocktail with a double kick. One kick from the vodka and another from the freshly brewed espresso. These two powerhouses are joined together in harmony by the Bols Coffee and sugar syrup. This makes the Espresso Martini an endlessly fascinating drink.
The coffee cocktail was first invented when Dick Bradsell (a legend in the cocktail world who died last year) was asked by a young supermodel (often thought to be Naomi Campbell) while working behind the bar at Fred's Club in London in the 1980s to create a drink ‘to wake me up and f*ck me up’. The Espresso Martini, a cocktail of vodka, coffee liqueur and espresso, did just that. The drink, originally called a Vodka Espresso, quickly became an icon and to this day, remains the most popular coffee cocktail and a staple of after-dinner drinks worldwide.
