The Espresso Martini is believed to have been created in the 1980’s by London bartender Dick Bradsell. Based on the request of a well-known model, he shook up vodka, fresh espresso, coffee liqueur and sugar into a frothy mix. He named the concoction a Vodka Espresso. In the late 1990’s, the drink skyrocketed in popularity and evolved into today’s Espresso Martini.
Now, we’ve taken this 90’s classic and added the perfect (hazel)nutty twist. The Hazelnut Espresso Martini is made with Frangelico’s delicate hazelnut flavor, along with SKYY ® Vodka, espresso (or cold brew), and simple syrup.
