In honour of St Patrick’s Day this week, we’ve got a cocktail incorporating what is perhaps the island of Ireland’s best-known beverage: Guinness. This Espresso Martini, featuring the globally renowned stout, is made with Masons of Yorkshire’s Dry Original Gin and a dash of caramel syrup to counteract the coffee bitterness. If you fancy swapping in an Irish gin, find a few brands to try here.
Be sure to share your version with us on Instagram @ginmagazineuk.
- 40ml Masons Dry Original Gin
- 25ml Guinness
- 5ml caramel syrup
- 1 shot (25ml) espresso
- Fudge cube, to garnish
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with one ice cube. Shake until the ice cube has dissolved, then add more ice and shake again. Strain into a coupe glass and garnish with a fudge cube on the base.
