Bulletproof espresso martini

Bulletproof espresso martini

The end of the year always marks another business anniversary for us. So now it’s become a bit of a tradition to share a cocktail recipe, as we’re raising a toast to you, dear Citizens.

This recipe comes from the global bartender and Gin Mare ambassador, Robyn Evans.

Join us for the timeless classic made *extra*. Inspired by the trendy bulletproof coffee, Robyn added EVOO to this cocktail, elevating the mouthfeel and adding some lovely nutty notes. As a bonus, this pairing slows down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream!

This cocktail can be done with any of our oils depending on your palate. The Greeks will give it a smoother feel, whereas our other oils will bring an extra pepperiness.

Bulletproof espresso martini with gin.

Here's the method:

Serves one.

  • Pop all of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker or a clean jar.
  • Shake hard over some ice, so that the oil emulsifies.
  • Once it forms a thick layer of foam, double-strain it into a coupe or a martini glass.
  • Enjoy right away!

Ways to make it more your own:

  • Finish it with a coffee bean on top or a few drops of EVOO.

  • Play with different coffee liqueur flavours to find one you like best.

Polyphenols in extra virgin olive oil. Everything you need to know.

There’s a lot of talk lately about polyphenols and the important role they play in our overall health. And while they exist in loads of plants, there are some powerful ones specific to virgin olive oils which help to explain why it's been considered a superfood since antiquity. Perhaps it’s spearheaded by a wider post-Covid health movement, or the “Zoe-fication” from new innovations and research in the nutrition space, or maybe it’s just that we’re forever chasing the fountain of youth… What...
