Imagine the velvety smoothness of espresso complimenting the deep, caramel-like taste of dates. The result? Our Espresso Date Martini that transcends ordinary cocktails. It's not just about the taste; it's about the experience. Here's to your new favorite happy hour companion!


  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 1 oz freshly brewed espresso, cooled
  • 0.5 oz coffee liqueur (i.e. Kahlúa, Patrón XO Café)
  • 0.5 oz homemade date syrup (see below)
  • Ice cubes

Homemade Date Syrup:



  1. Soak pitted dates in hot water for 15-20 minutes until soft.
  2. Cool slightly, then blend until smooth.
  3. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth to remove the solid pieces. 
  4. Leave on the counter to cool completely before using.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator if you’re not using it immediately. 

Espresso Date Martini Instructions:

  1. In a shaker, combine vodka, cooled espresso, coffee liqueur, and homemade date syrup.
  2. Top with ice cubes.
  3. Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds to chill the ingredients thoroughly.
  4. Strain and pour into a chilled martini glass.
  5. Optional: Garnish with a few espresso beans, or a brown sugar rim for some added sweetness!
