Espresso Martini | Cocktail With A Twist With Shatbhi Basu

Espresso Martini | Cocktail With A Twist With Shatbhi Basu

Treat yourself to an Espresso Martini from the cocktail queen herself, Shatbhi Basu.

While our classic coffee cocktail recipe uses freshly brewed espresso, vodka, and a dash of coffee liqueur, we’ve added a slight twist to make it the perfect pick me up post-lunch or dinner and especially on those days when you need to be jolted back to life from a food coma.

Believed to be invented by a British bartender at Fred’s Club in London in 1980s, the popularity of Espresso Martini since then has only grown and has found it’s place in most bar menus around the world.



45 ml vodka (we have used Stoli Elit vodka)

15 ml coffee liqueur (usually Kahlúa, we have used Galliano)

10 ml Frangelico liqueur

30 ml black coffee

Ice Cubes


Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the espresso, vodka, and coffee liqueur, and hazelnut liqueur. Shake for 30 seconds, or until foamy.

Strain into a chilled martini glass and decorate with a chocolate biscuit. Serve at once.
