If you’ve not yet tried gin and coffee cocktails then 1: you are missing out big time and 2: this slightly sweeter version of an Espresso Martini might be a great introduction.

The Espresso Martini is one of the all time classic gin cocktails but every so often a little update can provide a bit of variety.

The main twist in this recipe from Pin Gin is the use of their Valencian Orange gin instead of a more traditional London Dry.

Pin Gin Valencian Orange is packed full of wonderfully sweet Valencian oranges whilst still retaining a juniper core. This makes it perfect for a zesty twist on a classic that still retains all the best features of the original.

If you want a cocktail that’s easy to make, gives you a bit of get-up-and-go and has a citrus tang then be sure to give this Orange Espresso Martini recipe a try.
