Courvoisier Espresso Martini

The Weekly Cocktail Recipe: Courvoisier Espresso Martini

According to research from the University of Warwick, brandy is the UK’s favourite Christmas spirit – beating gin and whisky. Though Christmas has passed, it’s clear that brandy is an ideal (generally under-appreciated) spirit for the colder months at the beginning of the year. This week’s cocktail recipe – the Courvoisier espresso martini – for instance, replaces switches traditional vodka for brandy, bringing a rich sweetness perfectly paired with coffee. Moreover, the drink is incredibly easy to recreate at home.


1 part Courvoisier VSOP Cognac

½ part fresh coffee

¼ part coffee liqueur

Dark cacao (to serve)

Coffee beans (to serve)


Pour the Courvoisier VSOP Cognac, fresh coffee and coffee liqueur into a cocktail shaker and shake until well combined.

Strain the combined ingredients into a martini glass.

Garnish with three coffee beans and dust with dark cacao.
