The story of the Espresso Martini, created by Dick Bradsell, began in London, in 1984: an espresso, vodka, coffee liqueur and sugar syrup,and so the Espresso Martini was born. We would like to share with you this rum and banana liqueur version prepared using the DeLonghi espresso grinder and a few tips and secrets!
Step 1: Pour the double espresso into the smaller part of the shaker.
Step 2: Meanwhile, fill the large part of the shaker with ice cubes until it is 3/4 full.
Step 3: Remove the “lost ice” from the large part of the shaker.
Step 4: Add the rum and the coffee liqueur and pour the mixture over the ice cubes.
Step 5: Close the shaker and shake vigourously.
Step 6: Strain the mixture into a pretty glass and decorate.
The glass: A martini glass, or ‘V’-shaped cocktail glass.
Decoration: A very thin slice of banana and a coffee bean.
