WATCH: How to Make a Salted Espresso Martini

in partnership with grey-goose-sponsor-logo

A twist on your favourite post-dinner drink.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be a professional bartender or barista to whip up a good espresso martini. You just need to have a good technique, great ingredients and something that sets your drink apart.

At Grey Goose's Boulangerie Bleue waterside mansion party this summer, a salted espresso martini was served — a classic post-dinner combination of vodka and coffee liqueur with a little chocolate and a pinch of salt as a finishing touch.

We asked Grey Goose's lively global ambassador Joe McCanta to show us how to make this variation on the classic — check out his technique below.
