Elevate your cocktail game with this version of the Espresso Martini. Use our favourite Costa Rican Espresso roast – INVITO – brewed in a phin filter to add bold, chocolatey notes to your typically dry martini. The phin brewed coffee also provides strength similar to an espresso shot.

For this delicious beverage, we are advocating for locally produced Long Table Texada Vodka for a clean flavour, but feel free to substitute a shot of Empress 1908 Gin from Vancouver Island, if that’s your thing!
