Espresso martinis came on the cocktail scene in the late 1980s and have since been one of the most popular cocktails. They’re delightfully smooth, creamy, and brimming with the aromatic goodness of a freshly brewed cup of espresso. The first espresso martinis were made by adding coffee liqueur and vodka to espresso, but people quickly found that espresso liqueurs make espresso martinis that taste just as good with less work!
While espresso martinis made with espresso liqueur are relatively simple to make, the quality of the ingredients used makes all the difference. One of Vintegrity’s favorite recommendations for a truly delicious espresso martini – Caffè Borghetti Espresso Liqueur! Crafted from a 160-year old recipe with genuine Italian espresso beans, Caffè Borghetti is an elegant, full-bodied liqueur that perfectly balances the boldness of espresso with a touch of sweetness.
Caffè Borghetti’s national brand ambassador, Brent Falco, recently join Rachel Lindsay from Extra TV to talk about what makes espresso martinis so popular and how easy they are to make at home when you use Caffè Borghetti.
