For when you need to wake up and keep the party going
Legend has it that in 1984 a top model (rumored to be Kate Moss) came into Fred’s Club in London and asked for a drink that would, “Wake me up and then fuck me up” at the same time. The late famous bartender Dick Bradsell then whipped up this sophisticated and unexpectedly strong cocktail originally called a Pharmaceutical Stimulant, Since then, the Espresso Martini has quickly become one of the most popular cocktails in the world. If you’re looking for a post-dinner pick-me-up to keep the party alive, the Espresso Martini is exactly what you need.
Add all of the ingredients into a shaker with ice and shake.
Fine-strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with 3 coffee beans.
It is VERY important to use espresso instead of regular drip coffee or the drink will be watered down and unappealing.
If you want to try the original Pharmaceutical Stimulant simply replace the cocktail glass for an old fashioned glass and serve over a large ice cube.
