For some, just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean the fun and elegance are! The Espresso Martini offers a gorgeous and aesthetic way to sip on some coffee before another night out! Something about the martini glass really elevates the vibe of a mixed drink. A long housecoat and some slippers almost feel appropriate. However, this drink is less about a refined day at home and more about an extra boost during brunch or getting ready for a club night.

Now that we’ve passed the halfway point of the winter season and our holidays are over, it’s time for business as usual and to start making plans! For the average socialite, the holidays are full of parties, food, and spending a lot of money on other people. It’s fun but an exhausting endeavor. That means it’s time for a pick-me-up martini with that shot of espresso to really get the year going!

When it’s time to reconvene with your brunch buddies, this cocktail will perk everyone up. The holidays are fun for many, but they can also be a source of stress for those in the LGBT community as well. Invite your friends out to brunch, mix it up to their liking, and let them dish about family drama, the latest breakup, or that coworker you hear about every Saturday afternoon. We all need a good vent session now and then!

Or perhaps it’s time to finally hit the nightclubs again, and you’re looking for the perfect pick-me-up while getting ready for the night! It’s easy to make at home and a great way to collect all of your friends in one place before heading out. A shot of espresso with some added spice will help get the night off to a great start! Humans are social creatures, and just because the holidays have ended doesn’t mean the parties and fun have to as well.

Here’s how to make this cocktail: 

  • 2 oz Stoli Premium 
  • 1 oz coffee liquor 
  • 1 oz espresso 
  • ½ simple syrup 

Shake ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Strain into a coupe glass. Top with three coffee beans.

Enjoy and drink responsibly.
