Where To Find The Best Espresso Martini In Sydney
The perfect and somewhat classy 'wake me up' on a Friday night after a long week at work, you could be forgiven for thinking espresso martinis are a relatively new thing but they've in fact been served up on cocktail menus since the 80s.
You've probably experienced a few in your time, perhaps in the one night, but with bars creating their own versions you can never be quite sure what you'll get.
Thanks to Urban List, here are the best Sydney bars to get your coffee cocktail fix.
Della Hyde, Darlinghurst
Della Hyde's cocktail list is actually updated fortnightly, but their famous salted caramel espresso martini made with vodka, espresso, salted caramel, espresso liqueur and honeycomb is a stayer. Thank God for that, and please forgive is for our delectable sins.
Primus Hotel’s Lobby Bar, CBD
With a menu dedicated to martinis, Primus Hotel's Lobby Bar is a must. This vanilla infused, cold drip cocktail served in a chilled glass (using liquid nitrogen) is simply out of this world, complete with cold mist cascading as you sip. Surreal.
Lot. 1 Sydney, CBD
For an espresso martini with a touch of Italy, this is the place to go. With a delicious aperitivo hour complete with traditional Italian snacks to team with your post-work espresso martini, what more could you want?!
Firefly, Neutral Bay
They call it a 'show-stopper'... a mix of chocolate and coffee provides the perfect amount of sweetness, and according to these guys, it's all about quality ingredients and attention to detail.
Deus Bar & Kitchen, Camperdown
Situated next to Deus Ex Machina’s outlet in Camperdown, this bar puts a French twist on the renowned espresso martini with a perfect vanilla infused Vittoria Organic Blend for that smooth, smooth taste.
Pocket Bar, Darlinghurst
If whisky and vermouth tickle your fancy, Pocket Bar has the perfect espresso martini for you. Their take on the recipe uses honey as a sweetener, and is sure to keep you coming back to the hive for more!
