Espresso Martini

Invented in 1983 by Dick Bradsell at the Soho Brasserie, the Espresso Martini started life when a customer asked for a drink that would “wake her up”, when asked why he settled on this particular mix of ingredients he told Difford’s Guide, “The coffee machine at the Soho Brasserie was right next to the station where I served drinks. It was a nightmare, as there were coffee grounds everywhere, so coffee was very much on my mind, and it was all about vodka back then – it was all people were drinking”.
