Christmas Espresso Martini

This recipe is courtesy of Philip Moore, the owner distiller of Distillery Botanica and maker of the festive We Three Kings Christmas Gin. A spiced, fruity gin that has Christmas plum pudding infused within it, the flavours of the gin combines with coffee to create a luxury version of the ubiquitous espresso martini. It's one for an after dinner drink that will impress the most avid of espresso martini drinkers.


  • 30ml Distillery Botanica We Three Kings Christmas Gin
  • 30ml Mr Black Coffee Liqueur (we've also used Mr Black Coffee Amaro as a substitute to great success!)
  • 30ml espresso
  • 5ml muscovado sugar syrup*
  • Orange zest

*To make the muscovado sugar syrup, dissolve two parts sugar in one part water

How to make a Christmas Espresso Martini

  • Pour all ingredients into shaker and fill with ice
  • Shake vigorously (or as Philip says, shake it 60 times!)
  • Strain into a chilled glass
  • Squeeze orange zest over glass. Garnish with either the zest or dehydrated orange
