RACV Bar Manager Rob Pierce shows us how to make an espresso martini with a sweet kick.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a cocktail maker, then we have the perfect recipe to add to your repertoire – our take on the classic espresso martini.

The history of the espresso martini is shorter than you might think. Indeed, it’s believed the first espresso martini was created in London in the 1980s when a famous model walked into a bar and asked for a drink to ‘wake her up’.

For cocktail lovers, the baseline recipe of the classic espresso martini allows for unique takes. This time, we’ve got a bit creative with a salted caramel version that’s perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

Rob Pierce, Bar Manager at Bourke Street Green, shows us how putting a twist on this classic can elevate an already elegant drink into a real crowd pleaser – all you need are a few key ingredients.

So, get out your martini glass and your cocktail shaker, and follow along with Rob in the video below for a weekend (or weekday!) winner.
