The PERFECT Espresso Martini made easy

When I was young, my mum ordered a cocktail kit for me, which I absolutely loved.

It was packed full of stirrers and umbrellas and decorative straws, and I spent hours fixing exotically embellished cocktails of Ribena for my friends.

Nowadays, I’m not a Ribena fan, but I still love a cocktail. My favourite is Espresso Martini and I have now mastered this classic at home. Here’s how to make it – it’s really easy and just perfect for the New Year celebrations on Thursday.
