We nipped in to BBC Radio London to talk to our favourite presenter Jo Good about London Cocktail Week.

To celebrate we mixed up an iconic cocktail created right here in the capital by Dick Bradsell for a  supermodel who wanted a drink to “wake me up, then f**k me up”.

Sometimes called The Stimulant or the Supermodel Martini, you’ll find a version of it on most cocktail menus, usually filed under Espresso Martini.

Hear an excerpt from the show here…


(Running time: 13 minutes 10 seconds)

Espresso Martini

50ml Ketel One vodka
15ml Kahlua
10ml sugar syrup
35ml hot espresso coffee
3 coffee beans to garnish

Shake ingredients together vigorously over ice. Pour into a Martini glass and garnish with the three coffee beans.
