RPM Espresso Martini Recipe

The RPM Espresso Martini seamlessly blends the modern and traditional, appealing to both classic and contemporary cocktail enthusiasts. With the infusion of Licor 43, it elevates the experience by accentuating vanilla undertones and introducing a delightful textural element. There are two keys to perfecting this cocktail, making freshly brewed espresso and the meticulous shaking technique—extended and vigorous—creating aeration that enhances the coffee flavor and refines the drink’s texture. This thoughtful approach transforms the Espresso Martini into a sophisticated and indulgent beverage, marrying the best of both worlds for a refined and satisfying sip that’s perfect for any occasion. For a fun and contemporary twist, try this cocktail with tequila! Download the recipe
