This cocktail has one of the most iconic origin stories in the cocktail world. When a supermodel asked the late, great drinks legend Dick Bradsell to make her a drink that would "wake her up and f*ck her up", he came up with the now world-famous Espresso Martini. We wouldn't usually recommend having more than a few unless you're planning on pulling an all-nighter... but these five recipes might just be too good to resist.
Nuts for a caffeinated cocktail? Double down and bring those Nutella vibes to your cocktail hour with this Hazelnut Espresso Martini made with Mr Black Coffee Liqueur and Monin Hazelnut Syrup.
This Espresso Martini combines two of our faves from the house of Aluna: its OG Aluna Coconut Rum and its Aluna Coconut Coffee Liqueur. Together they make for a delicious, slightly tropical serve.
Does peanut butter and whiskey sound like a vibe to you? Then you're gonna dig Sheep Dog's whiskey liqueur.

Chocolate and coffee go together like Ben and J.Lo, so you're gonna love this rich, smoky Espresso Martini made using Cut Smoked Rum. Yeah, this is real-deal couple goals.
Coffee with an extra measure of coffee? Sounds like a recipe for some serious heart palpitations... especially when you throw Cazcabel Coffee Tequila into the mix. That's one thing that'll always get our hearts racing.
