Celebrate Espresso Martini Day With Absolut Drinks!

Join us in celebrating Espresso Martini Day on March 15th!  To help you kick things off, we’ve put together this list of recipes for everything from classic Espresso Martinis to non-alcoholic alternatives, creative twists and variations on the original recipe and a few other coffee cocktails thrown in for good measure!

As to why we celebrate Espresso Martini day on March 15th, we’ve got no idea. But hey, every day needs a reason to celebrate so why not!

  • The classic Espresso Martini is made using Vodka, Kahlúa and a fresh pulled Espresso. Regular brewed coffee can work in a pinch as long as it’s strong, just know that the foamy head won’t turn out as well as with a real Espresso.

  • The white stuff is a foam, or crema that comes from shaking. To get the perfect crema, you’ll need to shake the ever living heck out of your drink. Using real Espresso Coffee also helps.

  • The late, great Dick Bradsell came up with the now iconic Espresso Martini recipe when a famous supermodel requested a cocktail that would wake her up and f*** her up.
