How to make Espresso Martini

Founded by Dick Bradsell of London, a British mixologist noted for his famous cocktails. The espresso martini cocktail dates back to the 1980’s and has risen in popularity across the globe since.

Coffee Culture in Ireland and UK has grown exponentially and is now used in drinks, desserts and much more. The Espresso Martini is a strong concoction of Espresso, Coffee Liqueur, Vodka and Red Bean Roastery coffee beans to garnish.

We decided our signature coffee bean with its beautiful aroma and full-bodied taste would be perfect to put our own stamp on the espresso martini. The Red Bean Roastery Espresso Martini can now be ordered in our bars and lounges in Clayton Hotels and Maldron Hotels across Ireland and the UK.
