Espresso Martini Class
No espresso machine needed!
The Espresso Martini is a classic and creamy pick-me-up and in this class, you'll use cold brew concentrate, brown sugar simple syrup from Portland Syrups, and a few dashes of bitters to make your own Espresso Martini! We build the recipe as non-alcoholic with an option to add your own booze (vodka & coffee liqueur).
