We riff on the traditional espresso martini recipe using our Explorer Cold Brew Concentrate! Founder Cason Crane shakes up his cold brew martini with a sweetened coffee liqueur to add depth and complexity. (He recommends Mr. Black, which uses premium beans from Ethiopia — just like we do!). In the spirit of James Bond, we like our espresso martinis shaken, never stirred!
