About Espresso MartiniThe famous Espresso Martini is a top drink and a classic Kahlua cocktail. Invented by the famous late bartender Dick Bradsell, as a peculiar request from a British top model in his London bar in 1983. The Espresso Martini is a cocktail with a story, a history and a legacy. • Prepare the espresso coffee beforehand and let it chill. That will help to minimize the dilution, make your drink colder and even tastier! • When shaking: Remember to wake the drink to life, do not rock it to bed. That will also improve the frothy foam on top of your final drink. • When straining: Make sure to pour the drink brisk and swift from your shaker. That will help getting all that beautiful foam out and land on top of your drink. • Legend says that when late bartender legend Dick Bradsell invented the Espresso Martini a super model walked up to him and said the famous words:“Can you please make something that will wake me up and then fuck me up?"
