There are many attempts at an espresso martini out there, but the now-closed Bacchus Restaurant in St. Croix, Virgin Islands still holds the title of Best Espresso Martini Cocktail by far. We're thinking it was the combination of Cruzan's Vanilla Rum and strong, fresh brewed coffee that set this one apart as spectacular.

When you're making this, be sure to allow your coffee to chill while also making sure it is fresh -- if the coffee's hot, the ice in the shaker will melt almost instantly. A few minutes in the refrigerator or freezer chills hot coffee nicely.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a well-chilled cocktail glass.
