Espresso Martini, our ready made vodka coffee cocktail, offers a voyage into indulgence, blending the smoothness of TORS Vodka from the Dartmoor National Park with the rich, spicy notes of Owens Coffee's Baya blend. Sourced from the Batak region of Sumatra, the Santa Bárbara region of Honduras and Colombia, Baya enriches the drink with its deep, spicy character.

This cocktail combines the refined taste of locally distilled vodka with the complex flavours of dark-roasted, organic, Fairtrade coffee beans. Enhanced with a hint of Devon Sea Salt, echoing the sea's spray, our Espresso Martini delivers an exhilarating, coastal-crafted coffee cocktail experience, ready to be savoured.

How To Serve

As simple as hoisting a jib:

  1. CHILL your Espresso Martini in the fridge, preparing it for the voyage ahead.
  2. SHAKE it vigorously with a few ice cubes in a cocktail shaker, embodying the spirit of the high seas, to ensure a perfect, thick foam top.
  3. POUR, straining it into a glass, to unveil a foam as commanding as the ocean's crest.
  4. GARNISH with three roasted coffee beans, setting them afloat like tiny boats in the foam.

Perfect for bracing against the evening chill or savouring the warmth of a sunlit deck, this Espresso Martini is your steadfast companion, delivering a dash of nautical exhilaration with every sip

Tasting Notes

Aroma: The Espresso Martini greets you with an inviting bouquet of rich, roasted coffee, intertwined with subtle hints of smooth vodka and a touch of sweetness. The aroma promises a sophisticated blend of warmth and vigour, much like a brisk morning by the seaside.

Taste: Upon the first sip, the robust flavour of freshly brewed espresso takes centre stage, offering deep, resonant coffee notes. This is seamlessly followed by the clean, crisp profile of TORS Vodka, which complements the coffee's intensity without overshadowing it. A delicate sweetness from the sugar syrup weaves through the drink, balanced by a hint of saltiness from the Devon Sea Salt, reminiscent of a gentle sea breeze.

Texture: The cocktail boasts a luxurious, velvety mouthfeel, crowned with a rich, creamy foam that recalls the frothy whitecaps of the sea. The vigorous shaking process not only combines the flavours harmoniously but also introduces a delightful textural contrast.

Finish: The Espresso Martini leaves a lasting impression with a smooth, enduring finish. Notes of dark chocolate and a hint of spice linger on the palate, inviting you to take another sip. The touch of sea salt enhances the coffee's natural flavours, leaving a nuanced, satisfying aftertaste.

Overall Experience: This Espresso Martini is a voyage of flavours, expertly crafted to transport you to Devon's scenic coastlines. Each sip offers a balanced symphony of bold coffee and refined spirits, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a sophisticated, yet invigorating, cocktail experience.

Food Pairing Suggestions

The rich, bold flavours of the Bar Buoy Espresso Martini make it a versatile cocktail that pairs well with various dishes. Here are some perfect food pairings to consider:

  • Chocolate Desserts: The coffee and chocolate combination is classic. Pair your Espresso Martini with a rich chocolate torte, chocolate truffles, or a decadent chocolate mousse. The bitterness of the coffee in the cocktail complements the sweetness and richness of the chocolate, creating a balanced taste experience.
  • Cheese Platter: Choose a selection of cheeses, including aged cheddar, gouda, or blue cheese. The creaminess and richness of the cheese will contrast nicely with the bitterness of the coffee and the crispness of the vodka.
  • Nuts: A simple yet elegant pairing. Salted almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts can enhance the nutty notes in the coffee while adding a crunchy texture contrast to the smooth drink.
  • Tiramisu: This classic Italian dessert, with its layers of coffee-soaked ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese, is an ideal match for an Espresso Martini. The coffee flavours in both will amplify each other, creating a harmonious taste.
  • Seafood: For a more unconventional pairing, try the Espresso Martini with rich, oily seafood like smoked salmon. The cocktail's robust flavours can stand up to the intensity of the fish, providing a refreshing contrast.
  • Berry-Based Desserts: The acidity and sweetness of berries can complement the deep flavours of the Espresso Martini. Consider a raspberry tart or a blueberry cheesecake as a delightful pairing option.
  • When pairing food with an Espresso Martini, consider the balance of flavours to ensure that neither the drink nor the dish overwhelms the other, creating a harmonious dining experience.
