Any crowd will love this strong and smooth espresso martini recipe.
It is dangerous and delectable.
Guests said these drinks were dangerously delicious.
Espresso Martini's have become overwhelmingly popular over the last couple of years. They are a great way to keep a party going or pump it back up after a long ceremony day and a big delicious dinner. In 2022 at Silverado Resort in Napa, we supplied the espresso and the bar did the shaking as we watched a crowd of 100 go from sitting and tied to dancing and singing along with their fabulous DJ from San Diego. It was truly a testament to the danger of these delicious drinks.
Pulling shots and shaking 100 espresso martinis is no small feat, when asked to serve Espresso Martini at Harvest Stomp in 2023 we came up with our own large batch espresso martini recipe. It was a HIT! We have trimmed our 5 gallon recipe back for you to make something delicious for a smaller crowd.
